Fun Fact: The Prince Albert Catholic School Division was the sole Catholic school board in Canada that donated more than $2 per student to the Toonies for Tuition campaign in 2015-16. Raising an average of $2.47 per student, the Saskatchewan-based school board donated more than $7,000 to the campaign.
With that, the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario earned top donation marks, as they raised just over $10,500 for the Toonies initiative.
When you look at the per pupil rate, Prince Albert comes out on top, earning them the coveted Toonies for Tuition trophy for another year running.

It has been a tradition for many years that St. Thomas Aquinas High School's art team has been creating huge art displays for the foyer of the school. Each year a new display is created based on the theme for Catholic Education Week.
This year’s display inside the Kenora Catholic District School Board’s school is absolutely breath taking.
This year the display is called "Opening Doors of Mercy" and it's based around nine different displays that represent the corporal and spiritual works of mercy:
Mercy that Loves (family, mother and child); Mercy that forgives; Mercy that feeds the hungry; Mercy that cares for the sick; Mercy that welcomes; Mercy that rejoices; Mercy that shelters, and; Mercy that prays.
