Letter to the Dufferin-Peel Community on the Revised Health and Physical Education Curriculum

The Ministry of Education released its updated Health and Physical Education Curriculum Guidelines. Our preliminary analysis would indicate that the document is a significant update of the curriculum. Working with the Institute for Catholic Education (ICE) and the Assembly of Catholic Bishops of Ontario (ACBO), we will meet the expectations of the Ministry, within our Catholic faith context, in delivering the curriculum to our students.

It is important for parents and guardians to know that, as a publicly funded Catholic board, we teach ALL curriculum through our faith lens. Human development and sexual health is no exception. As Catholics, we understand that parents and guardians are the primary educators of their children and that your role in the teaching of family life issues is pivotal and vital. In our education system, we support this vision through our Fully Alive program. In fact, the vast majority of the revised curriculum is already covered within the Fully Alive program.

For over 35 years, Catholic schools have been teaching a family life program, which covers human development and sexual health. Under the guidance of the Catholic Bishops of Ontario, the Fully Alive program was written to provide a distinct Catholic framework for family life education, which is closely tied to our Religious Education program and embedded across multiple curriculum areas.

All curriculum, including the Health and Physical Education curriculum, is written using specific expectations, so that parents, students and teachers have a clear indication of what is expected of students by the time they finish learning the material at each grade level. Curriculum documents also provide teachers with possible suggestions and examples to illustrate the intended learning. These are NOT mandatory. Teachers support student learning through materials appropriate within the context of a Catholic classroom.

As we do with all curriculum, we will teach the revised Health and Physical Education curriculum through a Catholic lens. Now that the curriculum has been released, the Catholic education community will work to develop resources that support our Catholic teachers and ensure that the curriculum delivered in our classrooms is consistent with our Catholic teachings. The content related to family life will be taught in our

Fully Alive program, which provides its own set of prompts and examples. Be assured, also, that, we will continue to offer a rich, holistic curriculum, which provides a context for healthy sexuality that is shaped by a Catholic worldview.

The Online Reporting Tool

The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School board has developed a new way to help nurture a safe, caring and inclusive school environment.  The Online Reporting Tool is intended for students in grades 3 – 8 who become aware of bullying incidents and negative behaviours.  The student can simply ‘click’ on the link found on our school’s website to fill out the report.  The report will then be directly emailed to the principal and/or vice principal and will be dealt with accordingly.

It is important to recognize that the Online Reporting Tool is an alternate reporting option.  It is best practice to speak directly with a responsible adult at home and/or in the school.

ALL VOLUNTEERS on field trips must have a (Form A Vulnerable Sector) Criminal Reference Check. This is a free service for all volunteers. The form can be found here:

Please come by the school to have an Administrator authorize the Reference Check before taking it to the Police Station. Copies are also available in the office.

Student Registration is ongoing. For more information, parents/guardians should contact their school, visit the board website at, or call the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board at 905-890-1221.


Safety First when dropping students off at school

The safety of all children and staff must be considered as paramount at all times when dropping students off at school.

The number of serious incidents related to traffic circulation at the front of the school and in the Kiss and Ride area during morning arrival and afternoon dismissal has risen. These incidents include vehicles entering the site in the wrong direction, parking and pulling out of no parking zones, parking in bus lanes, to name a few.

It is imperative that all parents and guardians who drive their children to school adhere to the traffic circulation plan and comply with the traffic and parking signage on the site. It is equally imperative that all drivers follow the direction of staff managing the traffic circulation on the school site.

Thank you for your consideration and co-operation with this important matter.
