2013 Focus Magazine - Greetings on Behalf of the York Region District School Board

On behalf of the York Region District School Board, I would like to offer my best wishes to the participants and organizers of the Association of Srilankan Graduates of Canada annual dinner and dance.

I would also like to recognize and express appreciation for the work of the association in supporting the career counseling and success of young people across York Region.

We are fortunate to live and work in one of the most diverse areas of Canada. This rich composition also makes our region one of the most vibrant communities in the country.

Our Board respects and celebrates the diversity reflected throughout our schools, workplaces and communities and is deeply committed to the principles of equity and inclusivity in all of our programs and practices.

Congratulations and best wishes to everyone who played a role in supporting our youth and in the annual dinner and dance event. Your efforts are greatly respected and appreciated

Yours sincerely,

Ken Thurston
Director of Education
York Region District School Board
