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

To the students, staff, and families in the HCDSB community, 

I hope you have enjoyed a restful summer and that the break from school schedules has allowed for more leisure time to be spent with your family and friends.

Our staff have been busy preparing to welcome students back to school, and we are all looking forward to a successful and rewarding 2018-2019 school year.

With the start of the new school year now upon us, I wanted to take a few minutes to introduce myself as the new Director of Education for the Halton Catholic District School Board. I have spent the majority of my career serving the HCDSB community in a variety of roles. It is a privilege for me to be able to now serve our community as Director.

Over the next several months, I look forward to visiting each of our schools to experience first-hand the vibrant school communities that make up our great school system. I hope to meet many students, staff, parents, and community members along my travels, and I invite you to send me a note​ at any time to share your thoughts and provide your feedback.

This coming school year, we will continue to focus our efforts on our Strategic Plan, with an eye on Achieving, Believing, and Belonging, as we work with parents, parishes and educational partners to ensure that our schools are welcoming learning environments that meet the needs of all learners.

As a Catholic school system, our mission is rooted in the Gospel, and our vision is found in the person of Jesus who calls us to love and to serve. We know that our success lies not only in providing students with tools to help them reach their academic potential, but also providing students with a foundation for a life-long commitment to our faith and to our community that is based on the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations.

I wish you a great start to the 2018-2019 school year, and look forward to working with you over the coming years.

Pat Daly
Director of Education
