Peel board launches a new way to share the smile

​In every Peel school and worksite, there are endless inspiring stories just waiting to be told. To help share the smile, the Peel District School Board has launched a new website to showcase our amazing #Peelfam stories, people and creations.

Visit www.sharethesmile.ca to view all the inspiring stories featured so far, categorized in the following sections:

  • In our Stories section, you'll find heartwarming events, programs and experiences taking place in our school communities, including the story of Angie Choo, a grade 8 student who overcame her shyness when she discovered her passion for performing, and a Peel alum​—now teacher—who followed his Olympic dream all the way to South Korea.
  • Told from the perspectives of students, staff and community members, our People section shares the unique experiences of #Peelfam members. Hear from Settlement Worker Nora Hachemi, in her role to support newcomer students and families, and from Liban Osman, a student who inspires greatness in his school and beyond. 
  • Our Creations section showcases the creativity and talents of students and staff from across the Peel board through poetry, performance, arts, recipes, designs and more. Whether you're looking for a delicious Peel Tasty recipe to try as BBQ season approaches, or for some inspiration from beautiful student artwork, this section is sure to ignite your creative side. ​

Be sure to visit Share the Smile weekly for new, inspiring stories, and subscribe to receive monthly newsletters. Peel students, staff, parents and community members are also invited to help #sharethesmile by submitting their own inspiring stories taking place in their school communities.
