Board Chair, George Middleton presents Sharon Oliver, Principal of St. Paul The Apostle School with the Sudbury Catholic Schools Chairperson’s Award for 2008. This prestigious award is presented each year to the individual or group who make outstanding contributions to Sudbury Catholic Schools

June 10, 2008 - Each year the Sudbury Catholic District School Board presents its Chairperson’s Award to the individual that embraces Catholic values, demonstrates initiative and ingenuity and contributes positively to the lives of its students and staff. "Sharon Oliver, Principal of St. Paul The Apostle Catholic School is all of those things and more," stated Sudbury Catholic Schools, Board Chair, George Middleton before presenting Mrs. Oliver with the Chair's Award for 2008. The award was presented at the Board's 25 Year Employee Recognition and Retirement Party held at Bryston's on the Park during the last week of May.

Mrs. Oliver is well deserving of this award having been an exemplary teacher, vice-principal and principal for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board for more than thirty years. Her Catholicity is evident to all students, parents and staff that have had the good fortune and opportunity to meet or work with her. Her truly caring and compassionate nature is apparent daily, beginning with prayers during morning announcements to the spiritual way in which she leads liturgical celebrations of all kinds through her gift of song and words of praise.

St. Paul the Apostle Catholic School is a recipient of the Childhood Enfance- Better Beginnings Better Futures Snack Program due to her efforts. The community is well informed of school events and frequently invited to join students and staff in the school gym for sit down Harvest Teas and Shrove Tuesday Pancake meals.

Mrs. Oliver has been involved in numerous committees and initiatives that champion the cause of Catholic Education over her many years as teacher, vice-principal and principal. As the chairperson of the NOCCC, (Northern Ontario Catholic Curriculum Cooperative) she continues to promote and encourage Catholic curriculum across Northern Ontario. She is a member of the CPCO (Catholic Principals Council of Ontario) Professional Development Committee and is also involved as the chairperson of the Liturgy Committee of her church.
