We are pleased to announce that Mother Teresa Catholic School in Walkerton will receive the Dr. Bette M. Stephenson Recognition of Achievement.
This recognition program was established by the EQAO board of directors in 2009 as a tribute to Dr. Stephenson’s lifelong commitment and contribution to education and public service.
Mother Teresa Catholic School’s community was recently profiled in one of EQAO’s Provincial Reports for using provincial assessment results as evidence for improvement planning. The profiled schools are being acknowledged for their leadership, data-driven strategies and whole-school approaches to helping every child succeed. Each of these schools has considered its provincial assessment results and its unique circumstances to develop an action plan to work toward improved student outcomes.
A school team composed of the principal, two teachers and two parents will be invited to attend a ceremony for the 22 elementary and secondary schools receiving this recognition. The ceremony will take place on Monday, November 7 in Mississauga followed, on the next day, by a learning forum whose purpose is to share the successes of these schools who have demonstrated leadership in improving student achievement.
