Naming of Schools – APF013

Reviewed/Revised: April 23, 2012


The selection of a school name is a significant step in the process of establishing a new school community. Within a Catholic school community, the school name is intended to forge a connection with a saint or other significant Catholic individual or tradition, whose gifts/meaning will provide a focus for the school and kindle a unique identity and spiritual bond for the students and staff. The purpose of this administrative procedure is to provide direction to staff and community members in the selection of school / facility names in the Waterloo Catholic District School Board.
