Walk With Excellence 2019
June 11 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
On Tuesday, June 11, I will march with an incredibly talented group of Toronto High School graduates as part of the Walk With Excellence. This annual event, led by Itah Sadu, author and director of A Different Booklist Cultural Centre, is organized by a committee of students, educators and community members all devoted to excellence in education. The Walk with Excellence celebrates the achievements of Toronto’s students and the efforts of principals, teachers and community partners in a public demonstration of student achievement and success.
The festivities begin around 10:00 am, when I will assemble alongside of a few honoured guests and several hundred graduating students at CW Jefferys Collegiate Institute [340 Sentinel Rd, North York, ON M3J 1T9] before parading north along Sentinel Road into York University. I have written a poem to be to be printed on t-shirts and worn by high school graduates at the event. I am happy to participate in an occasion which showcases the pride, talents, and accomplishments of TDSB students and also marks the next step in an exciting journey in the lives of the community’s young people.
