Remembering DPCDSB's 50th Anniversary, 2019
Celebrating 50 Years of Excellence in Catholic Education 50th Anniversary Video produced by Salt and Light Television
2019 marked a historic milestone for the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board (DPCDSB), as we celebrate our 50th Anniversary. For five decades, our Board has provided Catholic Education to generations of children and become an integral part of communities in Peel Region and Dufferin County. We have grown from 23 founding schools, to becoming one of the largest and most diverse Catholic school boards in Ontario with 151 schools, serving over 80,000 students and employing over 11,000 people. This development is a testament to decades of commitment from our students, their parents/guardians and our staff to Catholic education. Over the course of 2019, DPCDSB will mark this incredible milestone through several events and initiatives.
Under the direction of Father Rosica and his team of directors and photographer a 50th Anniversary song launched on October 11th, 2019.
