Pat Daly will be chairman of the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board for a 27th consecutive year.

Daly, the trustee for Ward 7, was re-elected to the post Tuesday night.

John Valvasori, trustee for Ward 8, was elected vice-chair and Tony Perri, trustee for Wards 3 and 4, was elected to head of religion, family life and instructional services committee.

Daly reflected on the words of the Ontario Catholic Bishops in their 1988 pastoral letter, “This Moment of Promise,” during his address at Tuesday’s board meeting. He called them “an important reminder that although the current reality of Catholic Education has changed, the mission remains the same.”

He added that trustees, who have pledged this year to “renew the promise” of publicly funded Catholic education, must look at emerging trends in order to prepare for a much different future and ensure our schools remain vibrant.

“I identify these emerging trends so as to contribute to the dialogue of ‘Renewing the Promise,’ and to help to ensure Catholic schools ‘maintain vitality’ and are well prepared for a different future,” said Daly.

“I do so as well to encourage conversation and action at both the system and school level. Finally, I do so out of my understanding of the critical importance of Christian witness in the realization of our mission and appreciation for the distinct vocations and outstanding service of teachers and other staff.”
