DPCDSB students, staff and families to celebrate Catholic Education Week Virtually
Catholic schools across Ontario will celebrate Catholic Education Week from May 2 to 7. This year's theme is Catholic Education: Nurturing Hope.
"This is a very special week for DPCDSB students and staff," said Marianne Mazzorato, Director of Education. "It is an opportunity to reflect on the importance of faith in our lives and the role it plays in education."
This year, the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board (DPCDSB) will feature a social media campaign called #MyCatholicSchool to commemorate Catholic Education Week. Students, staff, parents/guardians and alumni, are asked to reflect on "What do you love about your Catholic school?" or "How are you or your school nurturing hope in your community?" and share their thoughts through posts, pictures and videos on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using the hashtags #MyCatholicSchool and #DPCDSB_NurturingHope.
"We invite all members of our community, especially our students, staff, parents/guardians and families, to participate in this social media campaign and share with us what they love, or loved, about their Catholic school and how we can nurture hope in our own communities," added Director Mazzorato.
