Annual Reports

The 2019-2020 school year was marked by challenges and disruption due to COVID-19. It was a year unlike any other but it was also a year that showed us how strong we can be when we work together to solve problems. This year’s Director’s report highlights the priorities of our new Multi-Year Strategic Plan and provides an overview of the initiatives and projects that have taken place over the past school year, despite the emergence of a global pandemic. Our key stakeholders – students, staff, union partners, trustees and parent community rose to demands placed on them by this crisis and have only made our Board stronger and more cohesive.

Education should be about inquiry, curiosity, and the culture to think freely. The Superior North Catholic District School Board is a student-centered place, where our main goal is to instill a desire in our students to make the world a better place by using current events as a springboard to critical thinking. Change only happens when our students are allowed to ask questions to solve today’s issues such as climate change, economic disparity and inequity.

Our Catholic values are key to addressing these problems. By showing compassion and empathy in our approach to our neighbours or a stranger, we enact our Catholic values and beliefs.

As we continue to move forward through a global pandemic we will take what we’ve learned, new practices, creative use of technology, putting well-being at the forefront of what we do, and use the new knowledge to change and improve education for our students.

I would like to extend my personal thanks and recognize the many system and school staff, who have gone over and above this year by committing countless hours of their time to support our students and families. My gratitude to every one of them. Thank you.
