This year marked a historic milestone for the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board (DPCDSB), as we celebrated our 50th Anniversary. For five decades, our Board has provided a Catholic Education to generations of children and become an integral part of communities in Peel Region and Dufferin County. We have grown from 27 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 10,000 people. This development is a testament to decades of commitment from our trustees, pastors, staff, students, and their parents/guardians to Catholic education.
Over the course of 2019, DPCDSB marked this incredible milestone with a number of events and initiatives, including a Celebration Dinner, a commemorative song "We Believe" written and performed by Nancy Boss, teacher at St. Joan of Arc C.S.S. and a video "We Believe – 50 Years of Catholic Education" produced by Salt+Light Television.
