Catholic Education Week: Celebrating Central Staff

Catholic Education Week: Celebrating Central Staff
Posted on 05/05/2020

This year’s theme for Catholic Education Week is Igniting Hope and I can’t think of a more fitting theme during this unprecedented time. During adversity we must turn to our faith and remember that we are people of hope - brighter days will prevail and it is hope and faith that will guide us there. 

Although we are celebrating Catholic Education Week in a much different way this year, this is still 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 continue to work together, during these challenging times, to provide our students with the very best possible faith-based education. 

Each day this week, I feel blessed to be able to appreciate and say thank you to each group who makes up our collective whole.


Our central staff continues to work quickly and quietly behind the scenes to help our schools transition into a distance learning environment. We have had to re-imagine the entire operation of our Board in just a few short weeks and it is astounding to witness how much we have accomplished because of your hard work and dedication. Today, I am thanking you for adapting to change, for stepping up to address challenges and for providing such unwavering support to our schools and families during this unprecedented time. 

It is such an honour to work with you.
