Following last month’s provincial election in Alberta, CCSTA President Ted Paszek and Board of Director Alberta Representative Tony Sykora were re-elected to represent their local jurisdiction and ultimately remain in their positions with CCSTA.
CCSTA checked in with both Sykora and Paszek to get their perspective on the election, campaign promises and what it means to continue their work in Catholic education both at the provincial and national level.
At the annual convention and AGM of Fédération nationale des conseils scolaires francophones (FNCSF), which was held in Victoria B.C. last October, Jean Lemay, vice-president of AFOCSC was presented the Jean-Robert Gauthier award for his outstanding contribution to the growth of French language Catholic education in a minority milieu.
From Twitter hashtags to newspaper articles, the CCSTA Catholic Education: A National Conversation conference became an online buzz both during and after the conference.
“With nearly 300 people travelling across Canada to attend this year’s conference, we wanted to use that attention to our advantage,” explains CCSTA President Ted Paszek.
When delegates arrived at the conference in Ottawa this past October, they were greeted at the registration table by a sign that simply read #ccsta.
