FORMING OUR CATHOLIC VISION FOR LEARNING IN THE 21ST CENTURY

Our vision of education in Dufferin-Peel Catholic schools is rooted in the gospel values of faith, hope and love. Guided by this vision, which is deliberately infused into all aspects of our strategic planning and operations, Dufferin-Peel schools strive to embrace the new realities of our rapidly changing world, while upholding our Catholic faith traditions.

Within these complex new 21st century realities, with variables such as globalization, the economy, environmental challenges, technological advances and increasing cultural diversity, we face the challenge of preparing our students to live, to lead, to prosper, and to fulfill their potential as Catholic school graduates, who are responsible and thriving global and digital citizens. These are exciting times in which to both teach and to learn!

We recognize and understand that students have different skills, knowledge and experiences and quite simply, they learn in different ways. Over the past year, senior Dufferin-Peel staff had the opportunity to explore, more deeply, the concept of learning in the 21st century. This included a detailed discussion on the ‘Why’, the ‘What’, and the ‘How’ of learning in the 21st century in the context of our Catholic faith. Based on these discussions a number of common concepts were identified as key learning skills, competencies and dispositions: that will be part of our Catholic context and connection to the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations.

From our analysis and discussion we must now strive to ensure that our Dufferin-Peel Catholic education system focuses on student achievement and well being for all through what we believe in and how we demonstrate our beliefs.
