Annual Reports

Our overarching approach for the 2020-2021 year was to welcome our students back and meet them at their own emotional and academic starting point. After the Covid disruption all of us experienced it was important for our students to return in the 2021 school year to a more stable, caring environment without the stress of feeling they had to ‘catch up’. Instead we moved forward using the skills gained during remote learning to our students’ advantage while keeping in mind that every child came back with different academic needs. The use of technology, as a tool for teaching and learning, which is highlighted in our Multi-Year Strategic Plan, and our equitable approach to teaching reflects our commitment to a student first stance. Their challenges were met with flexibility and adaptability.

In the first term of 2021, we continued to align our actions in accordance with our strategic plan. For example, Indigenous education is a priority due to the high enrolment of Indigenous students and our stance on justice. Cultural awareness and appreciation of Indigenous culture and addressing calls to action such as, purposeful and sustained integration of Indigenous history and perspectives and supporting native language programming are reflected in our curriculum opportunities and professional development. Being involved with our Indigenous partners to plan and attend meaningful cultural celebrations and create long lasting relationships is important to us. We also continue our focus on innovation and technology as we prepare our students for the future. Our classrooms are equipped with the latest technology and we use creative methodologies to keep our students engaged while learning.

I will conclude by stating our vision and values as a Catholic school board. They are, to inspire spiritual growth within an inclusive and respectful environment and to graduate students who have the knowledge, skills and confidence to affect change.

Thank you to our staff, parents, trustees and all involved in keeping our students at the center of all we do.

Sincerely,

Maria Vasanelli
Director of Education
