A Catholic should not march in a parade that the Archbishop or Cardinal would not march in.
This OCSB trustee clearly does not understand the Catholic faith. He does NOT deserve to be a trustee!
it is clear that Warren has an “inadequate and mistaken understanding of the Faith”!
Time to vote him OUT!
This is somehow called a “catholic school”?? and many other OCSB schools were similar
You may protest and say they will dressing as saints today or learning about saints on All Saints Day. Nope. Going to a 67s game for most of the day!!
Poor academic and spiritual standards!!
This is what kids at REAL Catholic schools do today:
And they learn to public speak and give a short biography of their chosen saint!
Why is OCSB reviewing lots of policies, but not their religious exemption one?
It is currently similar to a old SMCDSB policy that was found in violation of Human rights code. MPAC form is all that should be required. No meetings, no reasons, etc
Despite all the bluster from OCSTA chair about Catholics being forced to take Religion classes (from heretical teachers), the fact is the public school support on yr MPAC form is ALL that matters!
There is a new simcoe smcdsb process, to comply with the loss at the human rights commission.
It seems quite arduous still.. just made a couple of mtgs “voluntary”.. and a whole committee needs to look at the MPAC designation (ie. a SHEET of paper)..
also, only annual exemption.. why?? is this treating people with respect??
on the plus side, there are exemptions from religious celebrations, retreats..
As per the human rights agreement, this policy is being sent by OCSTA to other school boards. Expect them to make previously mandatory meetings voluntary etc. Also, you do NOT need to give reasons except provide MPAC form. Boards that do not update their policies, including OCSB, etc are in defacto violation of Human rights decision!
Use this new procedure when a Principal bothers you:
Human Right remedy decision:
Starting tomorrow, all OCSB superintendents and principals and managers amd psychologists head to Glen House Resort (nice pool in this heat). $50K down the drain to rent basically the whole resort. What the board calls networking, we call drinking (they all get a free drink ticket). There is a bonfire party on Wednesday night
This a report from last year:
Meanwhile, schools charge for mandatory items like agendas (not allowed by Ministry of Ed). No wonder the OCSB has $50K for 3 days at a resort and $70K for 4 hr PD day at Shaw centre on the Friday before Thanksgiving long weekend.
The $50K could have helped pay for air conditioning at schools or more special ed assistants..
Anthroposophy is a strange mix of “esoteric Christianity”, new age, buddhism, zoroastrianism, etc
This video of a play at Trille des Bois Cepeo taxpayer-funded school in Ottawa has several interesting things
This video has been downloaded by us already, so it is of no use to delete it from youtube.
The french translation is very close to the Eugene Schwartz english version. It is a weird retelling of the biblical story
1) at about 10mins, the archangels talk about reincarnation and spirits coming back to Earth
2) Near the end of the play, the archangels talk about different races. The wise race are the WHITES who head North
3) the last lines talk about Light amd Darkness merging into one. Ie. Anthroposophical Manichaeism
Why are taxpayers paying for this type of education!!! Meanwhile, this school’s Grade 3 eqao math results were 3.1/10!!
