Catholic Education Week - Celebrating Parents, Guardians, Trustees, Volunteers, Bus Drivers and Communities
Posted on 05/05/2017
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.
So many of our accomplishments result from the support of our larger school community - each of us has an important role to play in the faith-filled journey of our students. I feel blessed to have the support of incredible parents who value the gift of Catholic education as I do. Our trustees are unwavering in their support of Catholic education as well. And for countless volunteers, trustworthy bus drivers, and enthusiastic communities, I am happy and proud of all that we are able to do, when we do it together.
