Did you know...St. Thomas Aquinas is officially a Development in Peace School?
We are excited to announce that St. Thomas Aquinas has been officially registered as a Development and Peace School. The D&P Schools Program was created by Development and Peace - Caritas Canada to help Catholic schools engage in Social and Global Justice issues through the lens of their faith.
Each month, the students and staff will explore various ways they can live their faith and continue to "Grow in the PEACE of Christ" through acts of Prayer, Solidarity, and Service!
By completing specific challenges, our school can also earn special badges. These display these "badges of honour" will then be displayed in our school as a celebration of our commitment to helping others!
Each month a new school-wide challenge will be issued...we have already earned our “Prayer Power Badge”. This month's we will strive to be CTS Promoters!
Badge: CST Promoter
Challenge: Learn and promote all 10 Catholic Social Teachings (CSTs) in your school setting.
