Living & Growing Together

The confidence you place in us fosters our progress!

Editorial by Colette de Guénin

Fénelon Notre-Dame Secondary School Principal & Coordinator of Fénelon Notre-Dame Primary and Secondary Schools

The Fénelon Notre-Dame Primary and Secondary Schools’ educational vision calls us to “embody the Trust and Confidence to Live and Grow Together”. It is in this mindframe that we pursue our vocation. We must also create a dynamic educational environment that prepares our students for the future, so they will look to it with confidence and great aspirations. Right from kindergarten, educational projects focusing on relationship building, confidence, trust, and goodwill enhance the development and self-expression of each child. We continually innovate upon pedagogical and educational practices in order to develop our student’s sense of autonomy and responsibility. The middle school reform impresses us to do so, and the educational pathways available to high school students allow them to develop their capacities in their chosen field of inquiry; impelling each student to reach for personal excellence. Our collective objective is to make Fénelon Notre-Dame a hospitable environment, open to the world and to otherness, that promotes trust in one another and faith in possibilities. The trust that we place in others and that we receive helps us to grow and thrive. We therefore will write this year as a Gospel is written, with great humanity and fraternity.

May your path be full of promise!
