Last Chance to Help Us Improve The Learning Math Together Resources

Thursday, May 10, 2018

In spring 2018, HWDSB held focus groups at three schools to hear directly from parents about the barriers they face when helping their children with Math.

In response to the feedback we received, we created the Learning Math Together resources. These resources can be found at

We would now like to hear from you again to assess how well we met your needs and if you feel more confident in helping your child with their Math work.

Please fill out a short survey, by Friday, May 25 at 4 p.m., to let us know what you think of the resources and how they can be improved. The survey can be found at

    Watch: Just One Wish Kindness Awards
    The third annual Just One Wish Kindness Awards were held on July 1, 2017 in Gage Park during the It's Your Festival celebrations for Canada's 150th birthday. Organizers honoured 151 children (150 for Canada's birthday and one for good luck), age 4 to 18, from across HWDSB for their kindness. These children exemplify what is means to be Canadian and what Canada is all about. Congratulations to all!
