This year’s theme for Catholic Education Week is Walking Forward Together. I can’t think of a more fitting theme during this time when we are called to work with our First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities to the honour the recommendations in the Truth and Reconciliation report. It is also a theme which connects with our board’s focus for this year of Celebrating God’s Family. We are all reminded to work together daily to promote the uniqueness and dignity of all.
Catholic Education Week is a wonderful opportunity to recognize how fortunate we are to share in the gift of Catholic education. It is also the perfect time to recognize everyone in our school communities who work together to share in the faith and learning journey of our students and staff.
Today I am thankful for the group of leaders we have in our schools - those that lead by example and motivate us to do better each and everyday. The unwavering commitment of our principals and vice principals to Catholic education is uplifting and exhilarating. This group truly lives our vision - nurturing faith, illuminating minds, inspiring hearts, and empowering hands; we are working together to transform our world.
Thank you for all you do as you lead and serve each and every day.
