The Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) recognizes and profiles schools across the province that are using provincial assessment results to support their improvement planning. St. Edmund Campion Secondary School has been recognized for its success in this regard and is one of the select schools from across the province featured on the EQAO website.

The Ministry of Education released the new Pupil Accommodation Review Guideline (PARG) in March 2015. This guideline sets expectations for all school boards on managing and reviewing underutilized school space, including potential school closures, and for the greater coordination and sharing of planning related information between school boards and other community partners.

The guideline requires all school boards in the province to develop or revise Pupil Accommodation Review Policies and to invite public input into the policy before it is finalized.

A survey to collect feedback on the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board’s draft amended Policy 6.51 Pupil Accommodation Review will be available for review and comment on the Board’s website at until 4:30 pm on Friday, October 16, 2015. Supporting documents will also be available for reference and review. Please consider reviewing and providing input on this policy.


The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board acknowledges the value of the use of technology for learning. Students are permitted to register and use personal electronic devices (PEDs) on board premises and/or board sanctioned events for educational purposes, under the direction of staff and only with parent/guardian permission. Students may register their PED for the purpose of connecting to the board wireless network. Students are required to adhere to the student Personal Electronic Device Used with WI-FI Network Student Agreement (GF 337) and the “Network User Application and Agreement.” (GF066) Please be advised that the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board will not be responsible for any cost incurred through the use of personal data plans.

PEDs are to be used responsibly and should not interfere with learning; their use must comply with the Catholic Code of Conduct, board policies and procedures. Any personal communications (i.e., phone calls, text messages, etc.) will continue to be directed through the main office. Failure to comply with these guidelines may result in a loss of PED privileges and/or any other consequences deemed necessary by school administration.

The school principal may authorize limited acceptable uses of personal electronic devices during school-sanctioned activities for a specific designated purpose outside of instructional spaces and/or in common areas.

Students are responsible for the safety and security of PEDs at all times and the Board assumes no responsibility for lost, damaged or stolen devices.

For more information about the policy and guidelines around the use of Personal Electronic Devices, click here.


Dear Parents and Guardians,

The warm days of summer are leading into the even warmer days of fall as we welcome your family back to the Brampton West Family of Schools and to St. Edmund Campion Secondary School. For those of you who have relocated over the summer; those who have newly transitioned to grade nine; and of course, for those who are returning to a familiar school setting…. Welcome back, and may peace be with you.

It is my privilege to welcome you to the Brampton West Family of Schools. We are a very active and vibrant Family of Schools where the love of Christ is ever present within our hallways, our classrooms and, most especially, within our daily endeavors. Jesus is indeed the reason for our schools; He is the unseen but ever present teacher in our classrooms. He is the model to our faculty and the inspiration of our students. We will continue to celebrate the gift of Catholic Education this year within the theme of Catholic Education Week: "Opening Doors of Mercy" which combines both the theme of mercy and the act of opening doors of reconciliation, mercy, and forgiveness to all around us. The Gospel passages associated with this theme allow us to contemplate how Jesus’ entire life journey manifested the fulfillment of mercy through respect, kindness, reconciliation and above all, loving sacrifice.

As cold and flu season approaches, the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board continues to be vigilant in ensuring that our schools are clean and that our school communities are educated regarding good hand hygiene and cough etiquette. These practices are promoted on an ongoing basis, but as the prevalence of colds and flu increases, our board increases the cleaning of contact surfaces, as well as reminds schools to review cold and flu prevention with students and staff. Many resources are utilized from our regional health units.

A reminder, as well, that communicable diseases can be contracted in public places throughout the year. For example, cold-related viruses, such as Enterovirus, are transferred from person to person through hand contact. Cold and flu viruses typically peak from December through February, but can start as early as October.

Regional Health Unit Resources

Please assist us by reviewing good hand washing procedures, as well as other preventative measures, as outlined in the various Peel Health and Wellington Dufferin Guelph (WDG) resources available to you through their websites. As always, children who are unwell, should be kept at home.

Flu Clinics

Also available on the Peel Health and WDG websites, are the schedules of local Flu Clinics.

A Message To Parents and Guardians On Our Continued EQAO Success

The recent release of EQAO results for Grades 3 and 6 reading, writing and mathematics, Grade 9 mathematics, and the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT), show that Dufferin‐Peel has, once again, matched or exceeded the provincial averages in each assessment area. This marks the sixth consecutive year in which the percentage of our elementary students achieving or exceeding the provincial standard has equalled or exceeded the provincial averages. The Grade 9 test results and the OSSLT results represent the fifth straight year in which our secondary students exceeded the provincial performance. In fact, the Dufferin‐Peel secondary results were between 4% and 13% higher than the provincial averages.

These results speak highly of our students and of you, their parents and guardians, who support their education. They are also a clear reflection of the high degree of professionalism and dedication of our teaching and support staff, the commitment of our administrators and of the board of trustees towards supporting all students and ensuring their well‐being and continuous achievement. In addition, they speak to the high level of collaboration, which to us, is reflective of a caring and committed Catholic school system.

EQAO assessments and the OSSLT are just two forms of measurement. In the context of the goals of the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations, no single assessment provides a complete picture of student well‐being and/or achievement. However, as EQAO is used throughout the province to indicate student success, we take great satisfaction in our collective efforts to honour results that demonstrate that extraordinary lives are indeed growing with a great Catholic Education here in Dufferin‐Peel.

And, while we reflect with pride on our success, we continue to be collectively committed to our moral purpose of supporting each and every student, from early years to vocation, through the goals outlined in our Strategic Plan, System Strategic Direction, Catholic Board Learning Plan and Catholic Board Corporate Plan.

Congratulations to all on these very positive results and to the ongoing well‐being and success of our students.

Thank you to all parents and guardians for choosing a Dufferin‐Peel Catholic education and for your contribution and support as we work towards the continued success and well‐being of all students.

Mario Pascucci, Chair of the Board
John B. Kostoff, Director of Education

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.
