Statement by Education Minister for Back to School

Ministry of Education

Today the Honourable Lisa Thompson, Minister of Education, issued the following statement: 

"I would like to officially welcome all of Ontario's students back to school.

My hope for the 2018-19 school year is that students successfully continue on their academic journeys, and also use this opportunity to develop new hobbies and interests. Whether it's academics, arts or athletics, we encourage everyone to work hard and have fun.

Thank you to all of the hardworking educators, school bus drivers, maintenance staff, school volunteers and families for their commitment to Ontario's students. Our Government looks forward to working with all of you. Together we will make education in this province better than it has ever been.

On behalf of Ontario's Government for the People, I would like to wish everyone a safe and productive year ahead."
