Students were taught out of readers and exams were conducted orally and only available to the best students from each school division the technology of schooling was different as well Students often were seated on long benches or "forms" the introduction of the individual desk was a technological advancement advocated by some as a means of preventing students from distracting each other Urban schools were often early adopters of these new technologies This meant that the Toronto Public School Board was a leader in adopting blackboards which other school boards were slower to introduce. Teachers were also often expected to lodge in the school in the Toronto Public School Board provisions were made for a room for the teacher in the basements of the first six schools at this time secondary schools or grammar schools were not free However the Toronto Public School Board provided scholarships for the top achieving boys to attend these all-male institutions a provincial grant incentivized the creation of school libraries and in 1858 the board had 2,837 volumes An 1862 motion for the introduction of gymnasiums was met with some resistance as they were considered an expensive addition outside the scope of the academic disciplines of schools Ultimately the Select Committee voted against the recommendation TPSB Industrial Schools, Thunder Bay (Thunder Bay International Airport) 24/11 76/52 -9/-21 18/-5. . .

. Toronto was originally a term that referred to a indeterminate geographical location having been used on maps dating to the late 17th and early 18th century to refer to the approximate area that includes the present City of Toronto As the name was used to refer to the approximate area several historic settlements adjacent to the City of Toronto have also carried the name Toronto including Toronto Township and Toronto Gore Eventually the name was anchored to the mouth of the Humber River which is where the present City of Toronto is situated the bay serves as the end of the Toronto Carrying-Place Trail portage route from Georgian Bay There are several explanations for the source and meaning of the name "Toronto" One claim is that the origin is the Seneca word Giyando meaning "on the other side" which was the place where the Humber River narrows at the foot of the pass to the village of Teiaiagon Another is that the term is from the Mohawk word tkaronto meaning "where there are trees standing in the water" which originally referred to the Narrows near present-day Orillia where Hurons and other groups drove stakes into the water to create fish weirs French maps from the 1680s to 1760s identify present-day Lake Simcoe as Lac de Taronto the spelling changed to Toronto during the 18th century and the term gradually came to refer to a large region that included the location of the present-day city of Toronto As the portage route grew in use the name became more widely used and was eventually attached to a French trading fort just inland from Lake Ontario on the Humber Confusion over the origin of the name can be attributed to the succession of First Nations peoples who lived in the area including the Neutral Seneca Mohawk Cayuga and Wendat nations From August 1793 to March 1834 the settlement was known as York sharing the same name as the county it was situated in the settlement was renamed when Lieutenant Governor John Graves Simcoe called for the town to be named after the Prince Frederick Duke of York and Albany to differentiate from York in England and New York City the town was known as "Little York" in 1804 settler Angus MacDonald petitioned the Parliament of Upper Canada to restore the original name of the area but this was rejected the town changed its name back to Toronto when it was incorporated into a city Early history, 3.2 Religion 1.1 Early History of Education in Toronto 2.2.3 Montreal Canadiens. .
