  • CDS Health Sciences Club joins Forces with SickKids

    This past week, CDS Senior School students were given an extraordinary opportunity through the school’s Health Sciences Club to participate in a Canadian healthcare initiative led by SickKids known as CALIPER. This project was created to establish a database of normal blood test values in children. Previously, there had been a gap in this knowledge, leading to the use of adult reference values in diagnosing children, making evaluating sick children less efficient and more inaccurate. Seventy-three CDS students stepped forward to donate their blood for this wonderful cause.

Land Acknowledgment

CDS wishes to recognize and acknowledge the land on which the school operates. For thousands of years, these have been the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We also recognize the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat, Anishinaabe and the Haudenosaunee peoples who also shared this land.  CDS respects the relationship with these lands and recognizes that our connection can be strengthened by our continued relationship with all First Nations, by acknowledging our shared responsibility to respect and care for these lands and waters for future generations.
