CPCO recently held its first HR Boot Camp that ran from July 10 to July 13, 2017. During the event, we asked participants about their thoughts on the Boot Camp, and Elizabeth Carreiro, Principal of St. Hubert Catholic School (Nipissing-Parry Sounds Catholic District School Board), had very kindly shared her feedback with us!

The four-day session was an opportunity for school Principals to listen to a wealth of knowledge on important issues that are fundamental to the role.

With the release of the latest issue of Principal Connections, Editor Deirdre Kinsella Biss provides a sneak preview of what you can expect in our magazine this month.


We are all stewards of God. As such, we must care for all of God’s creations. As environmentalists, we must look after the earth. As people of faith, we must look after each other. As Catholic school leaders and community members, we must build healthy living environments that encourage us and all entrusted in our care to flourish, learn, and love. Stewardship promotes spiritual and moral formation and sets the table for the development and growth of responsible global citizens.
