Communications & FOIP Coordinator
Holy Family Catholic Regional Division
On World Catholic Education Day (May 10th), we were proud to lead the #BlueforCatholicEd initiative. On April 25th, we encouraged all students, staff and supporters to wear blue in support of Catholic Education on World Catholic Education Day.
We also challenged every Catholic school board to do the same. We were overwhelmed by the outpouring of support. All 16 Catholic school boards in Alberta, along with the Alberta Catholic School Trustees Association (ACSTA), the Alberta Teachers Association (ATA) and many parishes and Catholic organizations joined us in wearing blue.
There were over 700 tweets using the hashtag #BlueforCatholicEd.
