On Thursday, November 8, 40 students from across ALCDSB came together with PeaceQuest for the PeaceQuest Youth Forum: Peace Today, Tomorrow… For our Lifetime, a full day of peace related activities and guest speakers.

Students were present from Nicholson Catholic College, St. Theresa Catholic Secondary School, St. Paul Catholic Secondary School, Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School and Regiopolis-Notre Dame Catholic High School.

PeaceQuest is a non-profit organization based in Kingston, Ontario that supports and facilitates peace-building initiatives across Canada.

Led by ALCDSB's Student Trustee, Andrea Brown and other student leaders, the PeaceQuest Youth Forum included a blessing from Elder Kathy Brant and various guest speakers on topics related to restorative justice, truth and reconciliation, peace and the environment, and presentations from veterans.

Students also had the opportunity to reflect and express their creativity with screen printing. They created peace flags which were brought back to their schools to display.

Thank you to PeaceQuest and all students for your collaboration and dedication to peace in our community. 

  • Discipleship

    We accept the call to be imitators of Christ by embracing the Beatitudes through authentic witness at the school, community, and global levels. Rooted in our commitment to transmit our Faith and Catholic tradition, we are inspired to build communities dedicated to the formation of young people who recognize their gifts and responsibilities to contribute to the transformation of the world into a more just and loving society for all.

  • Scholarship

    We believe that each student, made in the image and likeness of God and being hope for the future, can be engaged in their learning and achieve at high levels with appropriate supports. We are committed to ensuring that the potential of each student is realized through the achievement of ambitious outcomes and improving in their learning to the highest possible level.

  • Stewardship

    We embrace our responsibilities for the prudent and judicious use of the resources we have been allocated. In our context, we are committed to the development and growth of all employees, responsible and accountable practices and our call to care for all of God's creation.
