Some of the impressive results highlighted include:

  • 94% of students agree that their school is a community that helps them to understand their Catholic Faith, and 95% feel encouraged and given the opportunity to actively live their faith in the school and community.
  • 88.6% of our community reports that our schools are welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environments; well above the provincial average of 86.1%.
  • 86.8% of our students are eligible for the Rutherford Scholarship, which is 16.6% higher than the provincial average.
  • 64.7% of our First Nations, Métis and Inuit students are successful in transitioning to post-secondary education. This is significantly higher than the provincial average of 37.7%.

“Data from this year’s Assurance Report demonstrates the power of enrolling early in our Holy Spirit schools, yielding high graduation rates and successful transitioning into either post secondary or the world of work,” states Board Chair Carmen Mombourquette proudly. “Further, the survey results received from parents and students show their support for the education being delivered in our schools and the tremendous impact that teachers are having on that education.”

Adds Superintendent Ken Sampson, “The results I am most proud of include our Faith measures. To see that 95% of our students feel safe and encouraged to actively live out their faith speaks to our schools’ hard work fulfilling our collective mission to ‘foster the growth of responsible citizens who will live, celebrate, and proclaim their faith.’”
