Human Resources and Staff Development
Niagara Catholic continued to focus on literacy and numeracy as key components of teacher training. The board also continued to focus on the health and wellness of staff across the system, with a number of programs and events through our Staff Wellness Committee. These events included seminars focused on financial literacy and retirement planning, mindfulness and parenting, as well as our SafeTALK sessions, workshops about supporting anxious children and youth, and drumming sessions and yoga classes.
Niagara Catholic also continued our health and safety awareness training, to ensure our staff are safe and well while at work. This included the creation of a workplace violence awareness program, culminating in an Online Reporting Tool staff can use to report incidents at work.
