Toronto, September 21, 2022 — Joyeux anniversaire TFS ! In September 1962, passionate educators and pioneers of Canadian bilingual education, Harry Giles (1930-2021) and his spouse Anna Por Giles (1931-1975), welcomed a handful of students into the basement of their home as the first cohort of a completely unique, coeducational, non-denominational school that they named the Toronto French School.
From July 26 to August 1, high school students from around the world competed in the International Economics Olympiad. Following a week of online challenges, Martin T., a Level IV student at TFS, emerged as the lead scorer among participants from 42 countries, earning him the highly enviable title of “absolute” winner.
TFS, one of the first bilingual immersion schools in Canada, celebrates its 60th birthday. CBC News reports on how the community recognizes this special day and how the school contributes to preserving French language and culture in Ontario.
