    The Social Justice team has been bringing joy to frontline healthcare workers and seniors over the past month. 
    CDS is helping Fatima Manshadi, owner of the Maple Teahouse & Bake Shop in Aurora, to make lunches for frontline workers at Southlake Hospital. This week, the ER nurses will be receiving chicken kebabs from Fatima thanks to the funding done during our last dress-down day. Members of the Social Justice Club wrote personal thank you notes that will accompany each hand-packed lunch, expressing our gratitude and appreciation for all of their hard work.

  • An Evolution of the Social Justice Club

    Since its founding about a decade ago, the Social Justice Club at The Country Day School has offered interactive and inspirational opportunities for community-driven Senior School students interested in exploring the issues and injustices faced in our contemporary world, as well as possible remedies for these issues. This year, Mr. Harvey and Mr. Downer led a group of students through their journey toward becoming global citizens with an ability and a passion for alleviating local, national, and international struggles. Over the past several weeks, I had an opportunity to sit down with both of these faculty advisors and speak about the goings-on of the club, its initiatives, its importance, and its future.

The Country Day School wishes to recognize and acknowledge the land on which the school operates. Our nearest Indigenous Nations are now the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and the Chippewas of Georgina Island. The Dish with One Spoon Wampum covenant is often cited as an example of the shared responsibility for caring for these lands among the Huron-Wendat, Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee peoples who would call these their traditional territories. CDS respects the relationship with these lands and recognizes that our connection to this land can be strengthened by our continued relationship with all First Nations, by acknowledging our shared responsibility to respect and care for the land and waters for future generations.
