A message from Jim McCafferty, candidate for TRUSTEE, Catholic School Board

Hello Pickering voters,

It has been my privilege to serve our Catholic ratepayers, families and students for 31 years (seven years as Chair of the Board). The experience that I have gained has proven to be a valuable asset when dealing with Ministry of Education directives and the many challenges facing our educational system today.​

Programs that support the well-being of EACH student in a safe environment while promoting our Catholic faith are key to ensuring the future success of our graduates. I am steadfast in my commitment to advocating and supporting any initiative that promotes this purpose.​

Covid-19 has provided us all with challenges that we never expected. The learning, physical health and mental health have been of great concern to all of us. We continue to deal with this and look for ways to help our students. Racism (Anti-black and Indigenous) must be addressed in a positive manner keeping in mind the respect, equality and human dignity that we must all practise. We are all God’s children. Ancestral origins should be celebrated. Ethnic intolerance is not an option.​

I am always available to listen to and assist with resolutions for taxpayers, parents and students regarding inquiries, concerns and questions. To offer your support or to voice any concern or to simply ask a question, please contact me at jamccafferty@rogers.com or 905-839-8454.

​I continue to pledge my total service to our community. I am your voice at the Board table; and I continue to promote the partnership of home, school and church in order to support the positive development of our children.

Jim McCafferty
