Toronto Catholic District School Board

Principal's Message


Welcome to a new school year!
I am looking forward to working with and for you as Principal for the 2019-2020 academic year. It is my hope to provide for you a source of support and encouragement for all of the good work that you do and the accomplishments that you achieve.
Jean Vanier C.S.S. is a community modeled after a great man whose ongoing works show immeasurable love for every member of society, not the least of whom are those who have been marginalized. The recipient of the 2015 Templeton Prize, Jean Vanier demonstrated to the world the central role that vulnerable people play in the creation of a more just, inclusive, and humane society. Vanier’s profound love for the marginalized has enabled them to be a source of healing, unity, and peace for our society. In that spirit here in the Jean Vanier C.S.S. community, it is my hope that we will continue to do the same – by welcoming all of our students, staff, and their families in learning and fellowship in accordance with the Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectations.
TCDSB’s pastoral plan for 2015-2018 echoes the sentiments of our school’s patron by calling us to live, work, and speak “Together with One Voice – Harmonizing Faith in our Families, Parishes, and Schools.” Jean Vanier C.S.S. has a 25-year legacy of nurturing in its students a love of service to the community. I encourage all students, staff, and friends of this school community to continue to internalize proudly that love of service to others and to go forth graciously to share your gifts of love and humble service with everyone whose lives you continue to touch
It is my hope that you will make every effort to participate in as many co-curricular aspects of school-life as possible. There is a broad range of activities in which you can participate that include the arts, sports, and clubs. It is through those sorts of activities, which complement your studies, that friendships are forged – and some perhaps that will remain life-long. No matter what path you take here at Vanier, may you enjoy a richly successful and highly enjoyable school year.
