Orange Shirt Day is on September 30th. This colouring activity would be a great way to initiate a conversation about residential schools with your child. This Wednesday let’s honor all those affected by residential schools by wearing orange and starting these important conversations.


On Wednesday we honored HFCRD's Edwin Parr Nominee Cassidy Yasinski at the annual ASBA Zone 1 awards ceremony. Cassidy began her teaching career at Glenmary School & Holy Family CyberHigh last year, and we are blessed to have her in our division teaching math and science. She earned this nomination by demonstrating a high level of understanding of how students learn best and for fostering a learning environment with enthusiasm for course content. Although Cassidy was not selected as the Zone 1 recipient for the Edwin Parr Award, we are extremely proud of all she has accomplished in her short time with us.

Congratulations Cassidy!

The Holy Family Catholic Regional Division (HFCRD) is pleased to announce that Trustees Kelly Whalen and Brian Hill were re-elected as Board Chair and Vice Chair respectively at the Monday August 24th Regular Board Meeting. Both nominations were uncontested.

Whalen was first elected as Board Chair in 2016 and continues his tenure for the 2020/21 school year. First elected as a Ward 4 Sub 3 Peace River/Nampa Trustee in the January 2011 by-election, Whalen is starting his tenth year on the HFCRD Board of Trustees representing Good Shepherd and Glenmary Schools at the board table. Whalen also served previously as a Trustee with St. Thomas Aquinas Roman Catholic Schools for four years.

“I am very grateful for the opportunity to serve the HFCRD community for another year as Board Chair. The role of Board Chair has been very rewarding and I look forward to another fantastic year of important work with our Board and division administration,” said Board Chair Kelly Whalen. “Consistency is especially important this year as we work to re-open HFCRD schools safely. I would like to thank all HFCRD staff for their hard work and dedication to the safety of all families.”

Hill is entering his second year as Vice Chair. He was first elected as the Trustee representing Ward 4 Sub 2 Grimshaw in 2018. Vice Chair Hill is starting his third school year representing the Holy Family School community. Vice Chair Hill is passionate about Catholic education and looks forward to continuing his work on the Board of Trustees.

“Thank you to the Board of Trustees for re-electing me as the Vice Chair of this great school division. I am humbled to represent the entire school division, and especially my school community I care so much about,” said Vice Chair Hill. “Serving as Vice Chair has given me great insight into the needs of all HFCRD school communities, and I look forward to continuing our important work as we serve our communities and keep the safety of students and staff at the forefront of all decisions.”

This afternoon all division staff gathered (in spirit) to celebrate our faith with a division-wide mass and awards celebration.

Each school staff gathered in their gymnasiums to virtually watch Mass live-streamed from Our Lady of Peace Parish. Although this year is starting off very different, our HFCRD family remains strong and rooted in our faith.
