Catholic Education Week | April 30 - May 5

Walking Forward English LRG 300x212Each 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/guardians to celebrate the year's spiritual theme; "Walking Forward Together" during Catholic Education Week.
