Director’s Holiday Message to the Community

Christmas card 2018

Manny FigueiredoWe are entering a special time of year when families gather to celebrate across many faiths, cultures and traditions.

This year, I am honoured to be able to share some outstanding holiday artwork by Rae Pryde, a student in the Nu Steel program. Her winning submission will bring her classmates a pizza party in the new year.

The 2018 calendar year was an exciting time at HWDSB, as we continued to refine and implement the HWDSB Reimagined vision and the promise of our priorities: Positive Culture and Well-being, Student Learning and Achievement, Effective Communication, School Renewal and Partnerships. You can reflect on where we’ve been by exploring the 2017-18 Director’s Annual Report to the Community

With our schools about to grow quiet, I hope you enjoy some added rest in the days ahead. I hope that you can strengthen positive relationships – and your own well-being – in ways that bring you happiness and good health.

My heart goes out to those who find the holidays a difficult time and those who need comfort.

Have a wonderful holiday season and a happy New Year.


Manny Figueiredo
Director of Education
