Black History Committee

exterior of high school

The Durham Catholic District School Board recognizes and embraces Canada's diverse culture. During the month of February, St. Mary joins with other schools and organizations across the nation to celebrate the contributions and history of Canadians whose roots are in Africa and the Caribbean. Black History Month gives our schools a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the Black community's achievements. As a faith community, Durham Catholic District School Board embraces and promotes human dignity, inclusivity, respect, diversity and justice.
