Sharing school memories — 140 characters at a time — has proven to be great way to celebrate Catholic Education Week for the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board.

For the second straight year, the board will be making the most of Twitter and the hashtag #MyCatholicEducation as it challenges those connected to Catholic education, both past and present, to share the highlights, impacts or memories from their faith-based schooling.

“Catholic Education Week (April 30-May 5) is an opportunity to reflect on the importance of faith in our lives and the role it plays in education,” said Nancy Marshall, a spokesperson for the DPCDSB.

“Twitter has proven to be a great tool for large communities like ours to come together and share our good news and celebrate our success,” she said, noting that there are about 81,000 students enrolled in the board’s 150 schools.

The DPCDSB first launched the #MyCatholicEducation social media campaign last year.

“It was very successful with many tweets, retweets and mentions,” Marshall said.

Tweets last year came from staff, schools and students.

“I see goodness, potential and the face of Jesus in the faces of all of my students #MyCatholicEducation,” tweeted a teacher at St. Michael’s Catholic Secondary School.

“What does Catholic education mean to me? Gr. 1 responses: we get to learn about God, celebrating how to be Catholic” said a tweet from St. Maria Goretti Catholic School.

“#MyCatholicEducation, because it means a lot to me,” one student tweeted from St. Edmund Catholic Secondary School.
