Farewell and Good Wishes!

A Message from Paula Dawson, Director of Education 

Well, we have completed another school year! 

The end of the 2017-2018 school year marks the end of a journey for many students and staff in our community.

Our Grade 8 students will be moving on to high school, and many of our secondary school students will embark on their chosen post-secondary pathway.

This past month, we honoured 96 staff members who have served the Board for 25 years and 78 members of staff who are retiring from the Board this school year. Collectively, we celebrated over 4,000 years of service to our students – what an accomplishment!

This year also marks the end of my own journey with HCDSB. I have enjoyed a wonderful career as a Catholic educator and leader over the past 31 years, and it has been an absolute privilege to serve as Director of Education for this district over the past 5 years.

Although my tenure as Director will officially end on August 31st, my memories of Halton Catholic will remain with me forever.  Thank you for an amazing and rewarding journey of service. 

Please take a couple of minutes to watch my farewell video.​

Have a safe and restful summer, and best wishes to you in the years ahead!

Paula Dawson
