“There can be no peace unless we have the conviction that every person is important, that every person matters, that every person flows from and to the heart of God.”
~ Jean Vanier
The Wellington Catholic District School Board (WCDSB) recognizes that all people are created in the image of God, each with inimitable characteristics deserving of dignity (Genesis: 1:27). In accordance with the Church's teachings, it is the policy of the WCDSB to provide in all its operations an educational environment which supports and enables diversity within its Catholic community.
INCLUSIVE EDUCATION PRACTICES
The Wellington Catholic District School Board affirms its decades-long commitment to the pursuit of inclusion strategies throughout its practices and services. It is critical all students, regardless of their social, emotional behavioural, physical and developmental abilities will experience a sense of belonging in our community.
The Wellington Catholic District School Board remains determined to ensure that all students are served in an age-appropriate classroom. The School Team in partnership with parents is a resource for the classroom teacher to ensure the meaningful academic and social inclusion of students.
Both in content and methodology, inclusive curriculum recognizes the WCDSB's commitment to Catholic values and respect for all students
An inclusive community is one where all students feel supported and valued in their journey of learning. Inclusion promotes acceptance for and of all students, regardless of challenge, need or exceptionality.
