Saint Damien School participates in the Catholic Community of Caring (CCofC) program. Students learn about the values of Caring, Respect, Responsibility, Trust, Family and Faith through everyday interactions and special activities. As part of the CCofC program, students are grouped into multi-grade families, or Big Family Groups (BFG’s). Roughly once a month the BFGs participate in activities which build on the CCofC values
Within our school, we are building more inclusive communities where respectfor one another, our community and our diversity are celebrated. Using these values as building blocks, we create a positive school community by developing relationships through activities such as student leadership, social justice projects and professional development opportunities.
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. Our priority is to ensure that all of our students are provided with a safe and caring school environment where they can excel and be healthy and productive learners.
