Handbook

Excellence is not a single event or big spectacle, instead, it is a series of good habits refined and exercised every day...

 
On behalf of all of us whose blood runs Celtic Blue around here, we welcome you to another wonderful beginning and NEW opportunity as we say in Link-lingo, “TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN”!
 
The goal of this page is to share with you our vision of who we hope to be as a community and how all are invited to the table to become an important part of that.

In the end, if we can strive to live up to the words of Celtic Alumnus Cardinal Collins, “let us not love things and use people, instead, let us love people and use things,” than we can certainly all come together to create a year that can forever be remembered as achieving Wisdom, Honour and Courage at school, at home and in life. 
 

God has created you to discover and share the many talents, skills and values you possess, and we challenge each and every one of you to BE THE CHANGE this school year.  Have a terrific year Celtics!
