HCDSB Alumni Awards ~ Celebrating Our Catholic School Graduates!

At the Halton Catholic District School Board (HCDSB), we value the whole child, and create conditions that support the spiritual, intellectual, physical and emotional well-being of all students so that they may fulfill their God-given potential.

As Catholic educators, we use the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations (OCSGE)​ as a framework to guide our programming and our work in Catholic education. This framework recognizes that the journey of learning for students in Catholic schools is not measured simply in terms of knowledge and skills; but also in the values, attitudes and actions inspired by Jesus, and modelled by staff and students, both within and beyond the classroom. Our schools provide students with the tools for achieving academic success, but of equal importance, our schools instill in our graduates a life-long commitment to their community.

The HCDSB Alumni Award has been designed to celebrate the graduates of our system who embody the attributes of the Ontario Catholic School Graduate. Each year, we will recognize seven (7) HCDSB Alumni Award recipients – one in each of the OCSGE categories.
