"It is my pleasure to share this document with you. I believe it reflects the Vision of the Board of Trustees and the DPCDSB’s ongoing focus on meeting this vision in alignment with our Multi-Year Strategic Plan and our inherent commitment to Equity and Inclusive Education.
These highlights are representative examples of how we have partnered with family and church to provide a Catholic Education which develops the spiritual, intellectual, aesthetic, emotional, social and physical capabilities of each individual.
My profound gratitude goes out to our faculty and staff, administrators, senior management, trustees, parish priests, parents/guardians, students, unions and associations and our many other community partners for all they do in helping us deliver a quality Catholic education to the thousands of students in our care."
Blessings to you all.
