We are excited to announce that we are starting the process of naming our new Catholic Secondary School in Milton!
In accordance with Policy I-15, School Name Selection, the first step in this process was to establish a committee to oversee the school naming consultation with our community.
The School Naming Committee has been established, comprised of the new School Principal, a parent representative from each of the Milton #3 Catholic Secondary feeder schools, Guardian Angels Catholic Elementary School, and Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Elementary School, the Pastor of St. Benedict Parish, our Milton Trustees, our Student Trustee for North Halton, and our Superintendent of Education.
The Committee held its first meeting virtually on Tuesday, February 23, 2021 to have some initial discussions. At this time, we are inviting ideas from our community on possible names to be considered.
Before submitting your name suggestions, please review the principles in Policy I-15, School Name Selection, keeping in mind that the name of the school should:
- serve to express our Catholic heritage, both local and universal;
- provide our youth with an exemplar for their appropriate development; and
- be appropriate to various uses commonly required in a school operation.
The Bishop’s office recommends that schools should be named after Persons and Mysteries celebrated as feasts in the Church’s liturgical calendar, recognized blesseds and saints, or Popes.
Submit Names for Consideration
To submit a name to the School Naming Committee, please complete the form by clicking on the link below. You may complete this form multiple times and submit as many names as you want.
Submissions will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, March 7, 2021.
The School Naming Committee will meet on Wednesday, March 17th to review the submissions and develop a priority list of at least two (2) names for consideration. On March 18th, we will share the priority list of names with you and provide an opportunity to vote for your preference.
If you have any questions or concerns about this process, please contact Milton #3 Catholic Secondary School Principal, Kevin Wong, at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for taking the time to submit your ideas. Your family is an integral part of our new school community, and your thoughts are essential to this consultation process. Your children (Milton #3 future students) are also most welcome to submit their ideas.
