Celebrating Catholic Education Week in 140 characters or less

Dufferin-Peel launches #MyCatholicEducation Social Media Campaign

On April 25, the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board will launch a two-week social media campaign called #MyCatholicEducation to commemorate Catholic Education Week – May 1-6.

Students, staff, parents and alumni, will be asked to reflect on “What does Catholic education mean to you?” or “How has your Catholic education help to shape the person you are today?” and share their thoughts through tweets and pictures using the hashtag #MyCatholicEducation.

The board will retweet a selection of responses every day and will highlight them on the board website. This social media campaign will not only serve as a way to celebrate Catholic Education Week, but it will also provide the Dufferin-Peel community with an opportunity to share their message with a broader audience.
