DPCDSB students, staff, families, trustees and alumni to celebrate Catholic Education Week – May 1-6
Catholic schools across Ontario will celebrate Catholic Education Week from May 1 to 6. This year's theme is Catholic Education: Rebuild, Restore, Renew Together.
"This is a very special week for DPCDSB students and staff," said Marianne Mazzorato, Director of Education. "Catholic Education Week gives us an opportunity to showcase the great things that are happening in our Catholic schools and celebrate our students and staff, and the important role that faith plays in education."
The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board (DPCDSB) will feature a social media campaign called #MyCatholicSchool as part of its Catholic Education Week celebration. Students, staff, parents, trustees and alumni, will be asked to reflect on "What do you love about your Catholic school?" and share their thoughts through pictures, videos, quotes and artwork using the hashtags #MyCatholicSchool, #DPCDSB_CEW2022 and #CEW2022.
"We invite all members of our community, especially our students, staff, parents/guardians, families, trustees and alumni, to participate in this social media campaign and share with us what they love, or loved, about their Catholic school and how we as a community can rebuild, restore, renew together," added Director Mazzorato.
