I would like to share with you a upcoming school safety event. Details as follows:

15 JANUARY 2015 (6:30 PM - 8:30 PM)

The work of the Safety in Our Schools committee has been ongoing as a result of the tragic murder of student Hamid Aminzada inside North Albion CI in September 2014.

As part of this review, the Safety in Our Schools Panel will be holding a Community Forums on 15 January 2015. The purpose of the forums is to hear from parents, students and communities their perspectives on school and community safety and suggestions to improve safety in our Toronto schools.
