The Man Behind The Name

Robert Baldwin (1804-1858) was called to the Bar in 1825. In 1829, he was elected a member of Parliament of Upper Canada for the town of York. He had pure and unselfish motives and devoted himself to bringing about a good understanding between the English and French-speaking inhabitants of Canada.  

Throughout his lifetime, Robert Baldwin was highly respected and exercised moral leadership. He was a man of honour, duty and principle whose integrity was unquestioned. His leading traits were his sense of justice, devotion to duty, and high code of honour. He was an inspiration to his peers.

As we look to the future, may we all strive to model Robert Baldwin's sense of personal responsibility and honour as we continue to make Robert Baldwin Public School a place where our children are inspired through learning, caring and sharing.
