Community of Caring
The Calgary Catholic School District strives to help
schools create a stronger sense of community based in our faith.
All district schools
have established Catholic Community of Caring programs based on the values of
faith, caring, respect, responsibility, trust and family. The Catholic
Community of Caring program focuses on building respectful and caring school
environments, rooted in Catholic values.
Within our schools
we are building more inclusive communities where respect for one another, our
community and our diversity are celebrated. Each school’s Catholic Community of
Caring program builds positive school communities by developing relationships
through activities such as student leadership conventions, social justice
projects and professional development opportunities.
Community of Caring initiative is not just a program, but also a process.
Through the incorporation of its essential elements into the daily life of
school, a climate is created where the whole school community embraces these
values. As a result, schools have experienced a reduction in incidents of
bullying, absenteeism, discipline issues and an increase in volunteer service
within the community.
