Principal`s Message - Mark Novis 2017/18


What a great beginning to a new school year this has been. Thank you to all the parents, students, staff, and friends of the community who have welcomed me to The Divine Infant and made me feel very much at home. 

Last year our school was deemed a "High Achieving School" by TCDSB and it is a title we are working to keep. This year, we will continue working on all the great endeavours begun last year, especially on the strong numeracy focus, with a view to further promoting student achievement and success on standardized assessments.  

My vision for our school has been two fold.  One, to bring church to our students by creating a sacred space in our atrium where we as a community gather together to celebrate the Eucharist, the virtues of the month and to practice Christian meditation.  This has been done in partnership with The Knights of Columbus and Prince of Peace Parish. The second focus of our vision is to engage our parent community in the form of our CPIC meetings, fundraising, working collaboratively for the puspose of creating a safe, inclusive and academic environment.  We had a successful year end last year with our Community Fun Fair.

In terms of academics, our teachers are using moderated marking, precision instruction and success criteria in Mathematics and Literacy to develop critical and creative thinking skills.

Our staff and students are active in a variety of sports teams and school clubs. We will be visiting other schools and sites, as well as hosting here at The Divine Infant various sports and academic teams, including cross country, Me to We, volleyball, basketball, soccer, W5H, and track and field.

Our school will continue to strongly promote Christian Social Values and Justice. Our staff and students are fast at work building awareness and creating initiatives with an end to supporting charities, both local and global.

I would like to thank the professional and patient staff for giving their time to support activities inside and outside our school day.  Thank you to Ms. Forrester for her dedication and commitment to our students.We look forward to continued parent support and participation. You are always welcome at The Divine Infant Catholic School.
