Welcome from Director of Education Joanne Bénard

As the Director of Education for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board, I welcome you to the school year and to our Board website.  The web site features valuable information and resources for parents, students and staff.

We value the role that students, parents, staff and community partners play in our success and thank you for all your many contributions in making our schools - Schools to Believe In. We have so much t be proud of and look forward to continuing to work with you throughout this school year.

Together we will help every student create hopes and dreams through excellence.

It is with this in mind that I extend to each and every one of you my own personal warm welcome. To the first time registrants with our Board, I thank you and commend you for making the Sudbury Catholic District School Board the institution of choice with respect to your child’s education.  I am confident that you will be extended every courtesy and will feel an immediate sense of belonging as you become a part of our family.  I would also like to thank the students and parents who are returning.  Your dedication and commitment to Catholic Education is a testament to your belief in our values and traditions.

The Sudbury Catholic School Board has so much to be proud of and I am honoured to be part of it.  Building on our vision, creating hopes and dreams through excellence, the Sudbury Catholic Schools learning community continues to strengthen its long-standing tradition of Catholic Education in the City of Greater Sudbury through the unique partnerships that exists between our schools, parishes and parents/guardians. 

We are making great strides in implementing our “Strategic Commitments” which can be viewed on this website.   These Strategic Priorities we developed as a school board define and articulate very clearly where we want to move to and how we want to evolve over the next few years.

Education is a joint effort and I invite you to contact me if you have questions, suggestions, or concerns.  Together we help every student create hopes and dreams through excellence.
