Character Education

Character Education is part of Durham District School Board's (DDSB) Positive School Climates initiative. The goal is to teach children to be caring, respectful citizens. Teachers, parents and community members all impact the character development of our students. Through a Whole School Approach, we are committed to modelling and encouraging positive and respectful behaviour.

To learn more about Character Education traits at the DDSB, watch our monthly Character Education videos.
