As We Learn, They Learn

With the upcoming release of the latest issue of Principal Connections magazine, Editor Deirdre Kinsella Biss provides a sneak preview of what you can expect.
Welcome to the winter publication of Principal Connections. In this issue, we shine a spotlight on the important role that Catholic principals and vice-principals have in helping students develop and contribute to humanity.
Traditionally, global human development has been measured by literacy development, poverty rates and financial sustainability. But human development goes well beyond academic achievements, health and income. Our students need to develop the necessary values, skills and attitudes for dialogue, collaboration and cooperation in order to live peacefully and lovingly within a community. At the heart of it, students must learn to exercise acceptance of one another. In its most profound sense, then, human development is at the core of Catholic education.
