Davisville has a new program designed to raise funds to help out the TDSB’s visually impaired students. Each year the TDSB runs field trips to bring visually impaired students – who are ordinarily integrated into classrooms across the city – together for field trips. However the costs of actually transporting those students can be daunting. This year Davisville will send home slips asking for toonies to contribute to these transportation costs. School Council will match all donations.
