Welcome Back to a New School Year!
A Message from the Director of Education

As the final week of summer comes to an end, I wanted to take a moment to wish families and members of our community a very smooth transition into the 2019-2020 school year. I hope you have enjoyed some quality time over the summer, and that your family is ready and excited to start school next week.

Our staff have been busy preparing to welcome students back to class, and we are all looking forward to a successful and rewarding 2019-2020 school year.

If you are new to HCDSB, welcome! I know that you will soon come to appreciate why our school board is recognized across the province as an exceptional educational system.

As a Catholic school system, our mission is rooted in faith, and our vision is found in the person of Jesus who calls us to love and to serve. We are committed to providing children with tools to help them reach their academic potential, but we are also committed to working with parents and guardians to help children develop a foundation for a life-long commitment to our community that is based on the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations​.

I look forward to working with parents, staff and community members this coming year. Together, we will continue to create welcoming, inclusive, and engaging learning communities that meet the needs of all students.

All the best for a great first day of school, and for a fantastic 2019-2020!

Pat Daly
Director of Education
