Catholic Education Week | May 1 - 6

CEW 2016Each year during Catholic Education Week, we celebrate the unique identity and distinctive contributions of Catholic education in Ontario. 

Our Catholic faith emphasizes the belief that all persons are made in the image of God and that Christ shows us the fullest expression of God's image alive in each of us. Our Catholic schools foster the excellence of all students through the dedicated efforts of the teaching and support staff.

CSPA encourages all OCSB parents/guardiansto celebrate the year's spiritual theme; "Opening the Doors of Mercy" during Catholic Education Week.
