​​​​​​​​​​​​​Director's Annual Report 2022​Brush cross logo with pillars colour.jpg

2022_D_DeSantis-1.JPGDavid DeSantis  Director of EducationAs we look back on the 2021-2022 school year, we reflect on another year of challenges faced and obstacles overcome during the COVID-19 pandemic. ALCDSB staff, students, and their families were adaptable, patient and resilient through several transitions from remote to in-person learning. Thank you to the members of our Senior team, Principals, Vice-Principals, teaching, support, and Board office staff, for your dedication to excellence that is a hallmark of our Catholic education system. You were the instrument of hope for our students, and the beacon through which our pastoral theme, β€œBeloved Children of God” became fully illuminated. 

A full return to in-person learning this September has allowed us to re-connect with students in our efforts to nurture their mental health and well-beingIn addition, in-person learning has presented rich opportunities to build the capacity of all our staff, as we continue to press forward in the interest of strengthening our culture through the lens of our Multi-Year Strategic Plan (MYSP). The good works of our Senior team, Principals, Vice-Principals, teaching, and support staff are highlighted in these pages.  

I am proud to present the 2022 Director’s Annual Report​ to our Board of Trustees and to our stakeholders. I invite you to read this report and learn more about the admirable achievements and progress taking place in our Catholic learning communities, where each member is loved, inspired, and successful. 

β€œI know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance.” Revelation 2:2
