Mission Statement

The Annunciation community is formed by Catholic beliefs and traditions. Students, parents/guardians, school staff, parish priests and trustees are united in working together toward a common cause. Our community is characterized by a safe and harmonious working climate in which the needs and well-being of every individual are paramount and everyone is expected to be treated with courtesy and respect at all times. Our Mission is to educate students to their full potential by providing:

  • Leadership in the shared responsibility for education that exists among schools, students, families, parishes and the community;
  • A safe and welcoming learning environment that is an example of Christian community;
  • Role models of Gospel values and Catholic doctrines, teachings and beliefs;
  • Guidance in what students need to learn;
  • Instruction in the learning process itself;
  • Religious, academic and technological instruction;
  • Integration of Catholic, Christian beliefs into the total learning experience;
  • Feedback on students' proficiency and performance.

Code of Conduct
The TCDSB Code of Conduct recognizes the importance of progressive discipline which focuses on prevention and early intervention as the key to maintaining a positive Catholic school environment. The aim of school discipline is to assist students in developing their ability to cooperate with others. A degree of obedience and conformity is reasonable and necessary to promote productive and harmonious interactions with others in any social group. At the same time, individuals are encouraged to internalize the fundamental values that are essential to the well-being of both the individual and society, and to accept responsibility for the consequences of their actions. In this way, young people can develop a self discipline that arises from a respect for themselves and others rather than a fear of punishment and also develop the ability to distinguish between socially acceptable and unacceptable behaviours. The student who respects self and others reflects a positive self-image and is mindful of the rights of others.


The TCDSB Code of Conduct recognizes that all members of the school community comply with the standards of behaviour outlined in this policy. The TCDSB will not tolerate behaviour that jeopardizes the emotional well-being or physical safety of members of the school community. Every member of the Annunciation community (student, teacher, parent/guardian, support staff, trustee, parish priest, volunteers or others) while on TCDSB property, at TCDSB sponsored events and in circumstances that could have an impact on the school climate is governed by the policies of the TCDSB and shares in the responsibility for creating a positive environment that is safe, harmonious, comfortable, inclusive and respectful.
