DPCDSB students, staff, families, trustees and alumni to celebrate Catholic Education Week – May 5-10

Catholic schools across Ontario will celebrate Catholic Education Week from May 5 to May 10. This year's theme is Catholic Education: We are Called to Love.

"Catholic Education Week gives us an opportunity to showcase the great things that are happening in our Catholic schools and celebrate our students and staff, and the important role that faith plays in education," said Marianne Mazzorato, Director of Education.

The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board (DPCDSB) will run a social media campaign as part of its Catholic Education Week celebration, asking students, staff, parents, trustees and alumni to share how they are celebrating Catholic education in their communities through photos, videos, quotes and artwork, using the hashtag #DPCDSB_CEW.

"We invite all members of our community, including our students, staff, parents/guardians, families, trustees and alumni, to participate in this social media campaign and share with us how they are celebrating this special week in our schools and communities," added Director Mazzorato.
