We are at a time in our province when we need to come together in conversation, gathering as a community to name and understand the challenges presented by an increasingly complex and secular society and to identify and build consensus around the opportunities that will shape our future.
Members of the community are invited to share their thoughts about contemporary issues in Catholic education. Your unique perspective will assist us in better understanding the challenges and opportunities for our Catholic schools and the students who attend them. Please take time to share your ideas and access the survey at: http://iceont.ca/news-and-updates/renewing-the-promise/
All members of our community can access the site and share ideas until May 19. We encourage everyone to visit and share their ideas.
