Message from the Director
Our 2021-2025 Strategic Plan: Building a Community That Accompanies, provides a roadmap for the Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington (PVNC) Catholic District School Board that will lead us into the next five years and beyond.
The renewal of our strategic plan comes at a crucial point for PVNC, as we recover from the global COVID-19 pandemic, which brought many challenges and trials to education, but also sparked innovation, creativity and diverse ways of teaching and learning with technology.
We chose the theme of accompaniment, the image of Jesus on the road to Emmaus, carefully. The art of accompaniment is about taking the time to walk alongside one another to listen, and in so doing, to transform. If the global pandemic has taught us anything, it is that the road ahead is unpredictable and it is more important than ever that we walk this road together.
“Each person in a Catholic school practices accompaniment by helping students realize their own unique story is given greater meaning and purpose in knowing and living the story we share in Christ. Our faith is about an encounter with God — an incredible love story that inspires faith and joy,” – Renewing the Promise, 2018.
As we began to renew our strategic plan, we undertook a comprehensive consultation process to listen and hear from our educators, support staff, administrators, students, parents/guardians, parish communities and our many community partners and stakeholders.
In doing so, eight major themes emerged, which you will see reflected in our eight strategic priorities moving forward.
I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who contributed their dreams, goals and ideas to this process. We hope you find your voice in this 2021-2025 Strategic Plan. We hope you join us on this path of accompaniment.
Yours in Catholic Education,
Director of Education
