St. Joseph Feast Day

March 19 is the Feast of St Joseph Day. St Joseph is the patron saint of the Universal Church, families, fathers, expectant mothers, travelers, immigrants, house sellers and buyers, craftsmen, engineers and working people, among others. Today we celebrate all staff and students who work and attend Ecole St. Joseph School in Whitecourt. St. Joseph was chosen by God to be the father of Jesus. He was a carpenter and he watched over Jesus and protected him. Just as God chose Joseph to care for Jesus, we are called to care for one another and for that we are truly grateful.


On March 10th, all staff across the division came together in Whitecourt to celebrate a day of learning. The learning of our staff is as important as the learning of our students. Our great division was so blessed to have the following presenters at the learning day providing their expertise, wisdom and care to our learning community: Dr. Cindi Vaselenak, Laurie McIntosh, and Mr. Tim Coates.

Religious Education Team Meeting

Our Divisional Religious Education Team worked on planning and organizing the Student Faith Retreats that each Living Waters school will host in the coming months. Some of our schools have planned a speaker for their retreat day and other schools have organized various hands-on activities and sessions for their students. This is an exciting new opportunity for our students in Living Waters. They will be able to spend a day strengthening their faith community within their schools as well as participating in fun sessions focused on the Catholic faith.

ELA Curriculum Meeting - March 7, 2023

Our English Language and Literature and Mathematics teams have met for our fifth set of meetings. Our Physical Education and Wellness team will meet later this month. All teams continue to focus on building assessments for the new curriculum that align with the new Program of Studies and our Concept based approach to implementation of the new curriculum. We also had our Supervisor of Technology Services join us to look at ways to integrate technology in our classrooms that supports the new curriculum.
Our goal is that every child who enters our doors will graduate from a faith-filled safe and caring environment prepared for future success
