2017-18 School Year Theme: Our Story ~ Our Journey

2017-18 School Year Theme: Our Story ~ Our Journey
Posted on 08/31/2017
"You shall put these words of mine in your heart and soul….. Teach them to your children
- Deuteronomy 11: 18a -19a

Every year, our Board chooses a spiritual theme and for the 2017-2018 school year it will be Our Story ~ Our Journey.

As Christians, stories are an important way for us to communicate who we are and what we believe. The stories passed on through our Catholic faith tradition remind us of God’s love and our responsibility to share that love with others. These stories are the foundation for Catholic education in our province and in our region. We know Catholic education is a special gift to be cherished and protected. We are on a journey in Catholic education to share our sacred stories through the faith-filled work we do in our schools. 

This year’s theme is especially fitting as our country celebrates its 150th anniversary. Our nation’s story is one filled with the journeys of so many different cultures, races and religions. Our faith calls us to learn from these diverse journeys as we continue to grow together as one nation. 

This year, we encourage our staff, students and families to reflect upon the stories which shape us, as we journey together in faith and learning.
