February 19th, 2015 · No Comments

 

The Central Technical School Blues took on the football players of Sir John A. Macdonald Collegiate Institute on Nov. 7, 2013, before going on to win the citywide finals that year. The field was locked down shortly thereafter, following the discovery of contamination in the soil. The Central Tech students are keen to get their field back, and support the TDSB’s plan to install a championship field, which would include artificial turf and a seasonal dome, at the site.

Students from 201 Toronto Catholic District School Board schools contributed to Project Reach, a collaborative installation on display at Brennan Hall (81 St. Mary St.) as part of Scotiabank Nuit Blanche. Each school made a “box of charity” to show their view on the meaning of charity. The hands symbolize people’s ability to reach out and change the world around them.
