The Halton District School Board is renaming Ryerson Public School. The school is located at 565 Woodview Road, Burlington. Students, families and community members were invited to submit suggestions for a new name for the school between Sept. 7 - 24, 2021.
The Halton District School Board recognizes the significance of naming a new school as an opportunity to:
- reflect the geography, history, local environment, culture or traditions of the community;
- consider equity, diversity and inclusion in the school community;
- name a renowned person of historical significance to the Halton community, or a real person whose contribution to society or humanity is recognized and valued across Canada.
Submitted names will be reviewed by a committee which will include parent/guardian representation. A shortlist of names will be prepared and presented to the Board of Trustees who will select the final name at one of the regularly scheduled Board meetings in November 2021. The selected name for the school will be announced in a news release and posted on the HDSB website (www.hdsb.ca) and social media.
