Newcomers


Our newcomer programs and events at the Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) are designed to welcome students and families who are new to Canada, and ensure a smooth transition into our schools.

TCDSB Newcomer Day


October 28 is Newcomer Day at the TCDSB.

The TCDSB is committed to the nurturing of a caring Catholic learning environment so that all students can feel empowered by what they are learning; supported by the teachers and staff from whom they are learning; and welcome in the environment in which they are learning.

October 28 is recognized as Newcomer Day at the TCDSB, where we welcome, celebrate and learn from newcomer students. Local schools will be planning activities and opportunities to celebrate the newest members of our TCDSB community.

Guiding God,

We come to you, grateful for new beginnings,
with eyes of faith and hope
that you will bless us with
new friendships
new learning
new growth in body and spirit.

We come to you, fully,
with hearts of kindness and love
that you will bless us with
hands that offer help
and strength to hold each other

We come to you, open to your grace,
with minds of justice and peace,
courage to speak and see truth,
and compassion to serve others.

We walk with you, Christ,
on this journey;
As newcomers, friends, guides,
With eyes of faith and hope
Hearts of kindness and love
And minds of justice and peace.
Amen.
