Toronto Catholic District School Board

TCDSB Secondary School
Student Special Olympics Day

Together as One...Make a Difference

 

Athletes, volunteers and supporters united for the 20th Annual Secondary School Student Special Olympics Day to continue building awareness of the importance of inclusivity and acceptance of all, especially those with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

 

Hosted by St. Mary Catholic Academy, Loretto College, and Brebeuf College, this annual event, held this year on May 31st fosters a relationship between students with diverse needs and other children through games and sports. In an atmosphere of respect and acceptance, the athletes competed against one another with challenging games and activities that benefited them physically, mentally, and socially.

 

This year’s event featured professional hockey player Stefan Legein as keynote speaker, who is currently making the transition from playing to coaching. It was an opportunity for our students with diverse needs to demonstrate their resilience, courage, and fortitude; and was a chance for the TCDSB community to share in their joy and laughter, and witness their strength, determination and spirit.

 

The organizers are grateful to the many volunteers and participants for their support of this year’s Special Olympics Day.
