One of the most distinctive features of our Roman Catholic faith is our Church's rich tradition of social teaching. It is critical to the unique profile of Catholic education that this teaching be explicitly integrated not only into the curriculum but also into the overall life of our school communities.
Our students, staff, parents, trustees, and pastors have traditionally involved themselves in a wide range of social action activities. Whether it is a food or clothing drive, a class discussion about poverty in our world, or participation in a public demonstration, our Catholic schools demonstrate consistent leadership in these areas.
At Our Lady of Lourdes we showcase our commitment to social justice through valuing the diversity within our school community and supporting those in need through our Peace Quest Team initiatives. Our students have participated in Pink Shirt Day, as well as many awareness days including; Autism, Down Syndrome, Epilepsy, Hearing and Vision impairments, etc. These are used as educational opportunities that allow students to learn about the various things that make us all unique. They create awareness, support, avoid misconceptions and spark positive conversations.
