Catholic Education Week: Celebrating our Teachers

Catholic Education Week: Celebrating our Teachers
Posted on 05/03/2021

The theme for Catholic Education Week 2021, “Nurturing Hope”, reminds us that publicly funded Catholic education is a call to service.  Regardless of our position or our responsibilities within Catholic education, it is a calling to bring the message of Jesus Christ into the lives of those students and their families whom it is a privilege to serve in the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board.


Even though we are celebrating Catholic Education Week in a very different way this year, there are still many opportunities to recognize the good fortune that the gift of Catholic education affords each of us. During this week, it is fitting to express our thanks and gratitude to the people who work collaboratively and collectively to provide our students with a strong, vibrant, faith-based education in a safe and caring environment.


Each day this week, we are honoured to express my appreciation in the form of “thanks” to all those who play an integral role in the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board family.


Our teachers have been called upon throughout this school year to transition between in-person and remote learning on more than one occasion. Your ongoing ability to embrace change demonstrates your faith and unwavering commitment to provide our students with learning opportunities in a faith-filled environment. Your work inspires hope, ignites imagination and instills a love of learning. Your passion for teaching and your dedication to your students is obvious in everything you continue to do during these challenging times. 

God bless you for the work you do every day. It is such an honour to work with each of you.
