Catholic Education Week begins on a Sunday to highlight the partnership that remains the foundation of Catholic education between our Catholic schools and local Catholic parishes. Throughout Catholic Education Week, we ask you to reflect on the significance of Catholic education’s presence and contribution in our Church, and in our society. We invite all members of our community, to participate in the celebrations and activities that will mark the celebration of Catholic Education Week 2017 in our schools.

#MyCatholicEducation 2016 Social Media Campaign
Celebrating Catholic Education Week in 140 characters or less
On April 25, the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board launched a two-week social media campaign called #MyCatholicEducation to commemorate Catholic Education Week – May 1-6.
Students, staff, parents and alumni, were asked to reflect on “What does Catholic education mean to you?” or “How has your Catholic education helped to shape the person you are today?” and share their thoughts through tweets and pictures using the hashtag #MyCatholicEducation.
This social media campaign not only served as a way to celebrate Catholic Education Week, but it also provided the Dufferin-Peel community with an opportunity to share their message with a broader audience.
