Model United Nations

Approximately 60 student delegates from the five high schools of Waterloo Catholic District School Board descended upon St. Benedict C.S.S. on March 20, 2019, with the goal of solving important global concerns. The St. Benedict Model United Nations club was pleased to host these delegates who debated, conferenced and offered solutions to issues as diverse as nuclear proliferation, gene editing, sexual violence in warzones, and corruption in foreign aid. By the end of the day, a sense of collaboration and collegiality was established as students walked away with a greater sense of the challenges that the world community faces when confronted with global tensions. The day was highlighted with words of wisdom shared by Mr. Paul Heinbecker, former permanent ambassador to the United Nations for Canada, and former graduate of WCDSB; and Gallit Dobner, political counsellor to the Canadian embassy in the Netherlands.

Catholic Education Centre Moved Until September

In 2005, the Waterloo Catholic District School Board relocated its head office from the former Sacred Heart Catholic Elementary on Moore Avenue in Kitchener to the retrofitted former St. Mary’s High School on Weber Street. The oldest portion of the St. Mary’s building dates from 1928, with other portions dating from the early 1960s and late 1970s.

After 14 years in the Weber Street building, significant renovations are needed to ensure our staff are able to maintain the highest possible level of service for our schools.

To accommodate the construction process, our headquarters staff have relocated to several different locations across Waterloo Region. Staff are expected to be returning to Weber Street in September, 2019.

Until then, staff are now located at the former St. Francis CES in Cambridge, the former St. Agatha CES in St. Agatha, St. Luke CES in Waterloo, and several other locations.

A complete list of which departments are located where is available online at: https://www.wcdsb.ca/about-us/contact-information-location/
