Toronto Inspires when a Forest Hill Collegiate caretaker continuously maintains the highest standard and takes pride in his contribution to the local school community.
The visit to Forest Hill Collegiate came about as part of a student assignment to do a photo essay of publicly funded institutions across the city.
This school sparkles. During an impromptu encounter with one of its stellar caretaking staff (seen in photo, second from the right), we are taken aback by his sense of school ownership. Following a brief observation regarding the exceptional cleanliness of the facilities, he spontaneously offers to show us around. Pride in his work and school are clearly evident through affectionate descriptions of years of service, through the picking up of a minuscule piece of paper from an otherwise spotless carpet during our walk about, and through his ample use of collective pronouns—us, we, ours.
