As we near the end of the school year, we recognize and celebrate many important achievements and hard work of students and staff across our Division.

To graduates of STAR Catholic and other divisions across the province, be incredibly proud of what you have accomplished. You have grown and matured into amazing individuals with unlimited potential. As far as you have come, this is only the beginning of what you will achieve! Congratulations, and may God be with you as you embark on this exciting new journey.

To those who will enter into a new year of school come September, may you continue to embody the values of kindness, service, and compassion you have learned over the years as you become leaders and role models for younger students. May God grant you His guidance as you continue to accomplish incredible things.

To our many partners who support our schools, including parents and grandparents, families, parishioners, volunteers, and other friends in the community, thank you for all you do for our students and staff. These thoughtful and supportive gestures are deeply appreciated. To everyone celebrating this month or in the months to follow, we offer our sincere congratulations and well wishes! May God bless you and grant you every success and happiness during this chapter and the next. We will see you in September!
