Sudbury Catholic Schools Vice-Chair Elected as Provincial President

April 29, 2008 - Paula Peroni, Vice-Chair of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board has been elected as President of the Ontario Catholic Schools Trustees Association (OCSTA) at its recent Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in Niagara Falls this past weekend.

Mrs. Peroni was first elected as a Trustee for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board in 1997, serving as Chair of the Board for five years and as Vice-Chair for three years. Having held the position as Regional Director of the OCSTA for five years and two years as its First Vice-President,Mrs. Peroni is no stranger to the challenges that continue to face Catholic Education at the local, provincial and national level.

Mrs. Peroni assumed her new role as President of the OCSTA on April 26, 2008. “The Ontario Catholic School Trustees Association is an organization with a long list of accomplishments and successes to its credit and it is vital to the continued existence of Catholic Education in Ontario,” stated Peroni. “Catholic Education has been and will continue to be a Good News story in this province and I look forward to working with our many partners to continue to grow this very fine educational tradition.”

The Ontario Catholic Schools Association defines its role as the guardian of Catholic Education which has been an integral part of Ontario's history for 160 years. For more than 75 of those years, the Ontario Catholic School Trustees’ Association (OCSTA) has safeguarded and promoted the interests of publicly funded Catholic education in Ontario. As the sole representative of Ontario’s 29 Catholic District School Boards and five Catholic school authorities, OCSTA represents the needs and perspectives of Catholic school boards to both the provincial and federal governments.

The OCSTA is managed by a board of directors made up of 16 Catholic school trustees, representing regions from across the province. Catholic schools serve the educational and spiritual development needs of more than 600,000 students and their families in Ontario.

The election of Peroni marks the first occasion since 1964 that an individual from the City of Greater Sudbury has held the position of President of the OCSTA.
