The Toronto Catholic District School Board joins with millions of others around the world in expressing our profound sorrow at the passing of former South African President Nelson Mandela.
As a true champion for dignity and peace, Mr. Mandela was an inspirational role model for our students, teachers and parents. We will continue to look upon his incredible life as an example of our Board’s mission to transform the world through witness, faith, innovation and action.
We are blessed to have been witness to his tireless fight for human rights and the dignity of all persons.
Mr. Mandela made the world a better place for everyone.
On behalf of the Toronto Catholic District School Board, we extend our sincere condolences to Nelson Mandela’s family and to the people of South Africa on this very sad day in history.
