June 16, 2009 - St. Christopher Catholic School joins an elite group of schools across Ontario that have been recognized by the Literacy and Numeracy Secretariat as a School on the Move. Only 35 schools (30 English, 5 French) throughout the province of Ontario were selected as Phase 4 Schools on the Move. During the four years of this initiative, of the 4,000 elementary schools in the province, 142 have been awarded this distinction.

The Schools on the Move initiative highlights schools that are making substantial progress in raising student achievement and have sustained this progress over several years.

In order to become a School on the Move St. Christopher School had to meet several criteria, which included:

- EQAO scores in reading, writing and mathematics have improved in both Grades 3 and 6 over a three year period

- Staff being able to articulate what they did and how they implemented changes

- Staff being able to provide evidence of growth in student achievement

- Strategies the school identified are supported by research evidence

- Collaborative culture, with teachers working together, constantly learning, challenging and supporting each other

- Doors being open and parents being partners

St. Christopher is the first school in the Sudbury Catholic District School Board to be nominated and to be selected as a School on the Move. Effective teaching and learning practises at St. Christopher are making a difference

Committeed to educating all children to the highest possible level, St. Christopher and all Schools on the Move have overcome challenges and are now achieving success. These schools are invigorating education in Ontario, increasing student achievement, narrowing gaps and gaining the confidence of their communities.

The Literacy and Numeracy Secretariat states, “With a sense of collective pride, we present this year’s Schools on the Move. For us, these schools are ambassadors for energizing Ontario education.”
