That’s the day dozens of Niagara Catholic staff bring the newest members of our Niagara Catholic family to a special Baby Day Celebration. This morning event brings together close to 1oo parents and babies for a time of socializing and fun. Thank you to our partners from the Ontario Early Years Centre, and the parenting class at Notre Dame College School, for helping make this event so much fun for everyone who attends.

Many of the youngsters who will begin their journeys in Catholic education in September attended one of our previous Baby Celebrations.

January 15 is a Professional Activity Day for our Catholic elementary schools. 

January 27 is Family Literacy Day. Niagara Catholic staff have planned a special – and really fun – Family Literacy Day event. Stay tuned for more details!

Our Grade 9 students will sit their first high school exams beginning on January 29, while our Grade 12s write their penultimate high school examinations as they prepare for their final semesters of secondary school. Good luck to everyone who is writing their exams in January and February!
