Mayor Foster visits St. Raphael Catholic School
Each year our school observes Catholic Schools Week along with Catholic schools throughout the country. Catholic Schools Week celebrates the fact that Catholic schools are an added value for the nation. Catholic schools and their students make positive contributions to their communities.
Traditionally they have high academic standards and high graduation rates. They are supported by strong moral values. Students undertake many service projects thus giving back to the community. Such values are instilled in every Catholic school student. Catholic Schools week began in 1974.
