Plans are moving forward to host an engaging, inspiring, educational and fun way to kick off the 2011-12 school year. On Tuesday, August 30, the TDSB is partnering with the CNE to host TDSB@CNE, which will give our students, families and staff and exciting day to remember.


All TDSB students in elementary and secondary will receive free admission to the CNE on this day and there will be discounted tickets for families and staff.


This all-day event will include music, entertainment, contests, giveaways and more! There will be three concert events in the YOUR JAM Bandshell – planned just for the TDSB! We’ve started to gather a remarkable line-up of entertainers, including Max and Ruby and Franklin and Caillou, perfect for our elementary guests. We’re also working on some great entertainment for our middle and secondary students – look for the announcement of more entertainers in the weeks to come!

In addition to the stage events, TDSB guests can test their strength against the CNE strongman, enjoy discounted rides, stroll through the TDSB Student Art Show or the TDSB Student Film Festival and wander through the CNE’s Animal Farm.
