Catholic Education Week

Catholic Education Week


During the week of May 6 to May 11, 2018 the Superior North Catholic District School Board will celebrate the significant contribution that Catholic Education has made to the community, the province and to Canada. Our Catholic Graduate Expectations challenge students to articulate in society those fundamental values that underpin Catholic education.

The theme for this year’s Catholic Education Week is:

Catholic Education: Renewing the Promise / L’éducation catholique: Renouveler la promesse

For a full schedule of activities for all schools click here.

The theme for CEW 2018 draws upon previous documents on Ontario Catholic education, namely, “This Moment of Promise” (1989), “Fulfilling the Promise” (1993) and “Our Catholic Schools” (2006-2007). These three documents, while several years apart from each other, all speak of the unique mission of Ontario Catholic education, the importance of its shared leadership by all those involved in Catholic education and the critical role of Catholic education in contemporary society.

Catholic Education Week 2018 combines the themes of reconciliation, solidarity, love, justice and ecology.

There are five sub-themes, one for each day of Catholic Education Week and they are aimed at helping staff and students to reflect more fully on what Renewing the Promise means to them.

The five sub-themes are:

  • Day 1: Remembering the Promise / Faire mémoire de la promesse
  • Day 2: The Promise is Within You / La promesse est en toi
  • Day 3: Praying the Promise / Prier la promesse
  • Day 4: Living the Promise / Vivre la promesse
  • Day 5: Proclaiming the Promise / Annoncer la promesse

Catholic Education Week is marked by special activities at all grade levels, including prayer celebrations and service activities.

We invite you to visit your local schools this week and to participate in any of our activities as we celebrate Catholic Education Week 2018!
