Six students, one from each PVNC Catholic secondary school, received Catholic Student Awards from the Catholic Education Foundation of Ontario (CEFO) at the Father Patrick Fogarty Awards Dinner in Toronto on Oct. 28, 2023.

The CEFO created the Catholic Student Awards to recognize and celebrate the excellence and accomplishments of young Catholic men and women. The awards also pay tribute to the positive influence, inspiration and works of Catholic teachers, chaplains, school administrators and parents. Award selection is based on a student’s scholarship, volunteer work and community involvement, as well as for conduct that models Catholic values.
