Introducing ALCDSB's new Land Acknowledgement banners

December 17, 2020

We are excited to introduce the ALCDSB Land Acknowledgement banner. Each school has received a banner to include in their school's welcoming space as a reminder of our treaty relationships. Saying the Land Acknowledgement daily invites us to reflect on the history of Turtle Island, to honour those who cared for it first, and to treat the land with care and respect. We were honoured to have Gosia Rutkowska, Special Assignment Teacher for Indigenous Education,  Student Trustees Ella Hsu and Mikaela Dewey, along with Chair Tom Dall unveil these beautiful new banners to our board of Trustees on December 15, 2020.

  • 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.
