Character Education

Character Education is part of Durham District School Board (DDSB) Safe Schools 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 modeling and encouraging positive and respectful behaviour.
