OCSTA invites all CDSB students in grades 4-12 to create a 2-minute video highlighting how demonstrating care and respect for others gives witness to our faith. 

This year students were invited to create a 2-minute video demonstrating how the scriptural quote inspiring this year’s theme is reflected in how we treat and respect one another: “If we love one another, God lives in us” (1 John 4:12)


Thank you to BRAVES Student Council for taking on this challenge and a very special mention to Julia Sy for her video production and editing.  We would also like to give a shout out to the elementary schools from HWCDSB who have also made the short list - St. Clare of Assisi and one of our feeder schools, Blessed Sacrament!

Here is the video for your viewing pleasure:

The next step is for students, staff, families and friends in your Catholic school community to vote for their favourite Catholic elementary and secondary school submissions in this contest.

This is your opportunity to invite your Catholic school community to visit the short-video contest voting website and vote for their favourite elementary and secondary school videos about this year’s contest theme “We are Called to Love”!
