March 11, 2021

In recognition of Thursday, March 11 being the one-year anniversary of the World Health Organization declaring a global pandemic due to COVID-19, The Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board will take part  in a day of remembrance and fly all flags at half mast today in honour of all lives lost to COVID-19 in our own communities, and around the world. 

We extend  our deep and sincere condolences to all families, friends, and colleagues of those tragically lost during the course of the past year. 

​While the pandemic presents ongoing and diverse challenges to our lives, we have been blessed to witness an extraordinary degree of resilience, compassion, kindness, and faith from our schools and communities. We are also extremely grateful for the tireless  dedication of our local health care and essential workers, first responders, educators, and all those doing their part to follow guidelines and stop the spread of COVID-19. 

We ask all of our families and community partners to please keep up your exemplary efforts in this difficult time, as we continue our mission to to build faith filled learning communities where each member is loved, inspired, and successful. 

  • 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.
