​During the week of May 6 to May 11, 2018 the Wellington Catholic District School Board will celebrate the significant contribution that Catholic Education has made to the community, the province and to Canada. Our Catholic Graduate Expectations challenge students to articulate in society those fundamental values that underpin Catholic education.

The theme for this year’s Catholic Education Week is:
Catholic Education: Renewing the Promise

Catholic Education Week 2018 combines the themes of reconciliation, solidarity, love, justice and ecology.
There are five sub-themes, one for each day of Catholic Education Week and they are aimed at helping staff and students to reflect more fully on what Renewing the Promise means to them.

The five sub-themes are:
Day 1: Remembering the Promise  /  Faire mémoire de la promesse
Day 2: The Promise is Within You  /  La promesse est en toi
Day 3: Praying the Promise  /  Prier la promesse
Day 4: Living the Promise  /  Vivre la promesse
Day 5: Proclaiming the Promise  /  Annoncer la promesse

Catholic Education Week is marked by special activities at all grade levels, including prayer celebrations and service activities.

You are invited to visit our school(s) during this special week and to participate in any of our activities as we celebrate Catholic Education Week 2018.


The Wellington Catholic District School Board is committed to supporting student success in all of our 22 schools. Our academic and extracurricular programs give our 7800 students the opportunity to learn, lead and serve. Grounded in faith based teaching, our schools are preparing students with the values and academic skills they need to be successful 21st century citizens.
