Principal's Message

I am truly honoured to be the new principal of Bishop Tonnos Catholic Secondary School. I look forward to working with our staff, students and community members to make our students’ experience at BT a rewarding one that they will carry with them for years to come.

As a Catholic school it is our hope that our students become involved in the life of the school with a view to growing academically, spiritually, athletically and socially. A school is more than the bricks and mortar that make up its structure. It is a dynamic hub of activity for our Catholic community designed to transform our students from young children in grade nine to contributing members of society when they graduate. To that end, our dedicated staff members along with community partners provide our students with a myriad of activities and events.

This easy to navigate website will provide our community with a source of information for all of our activities. Together with updates pushed to our website by the Hamilton Wentworth Catholic District School Board you are encouraged to use this site as a timely source of relevant information for both local and board wide activities. I also invite you to subscribe to our email alerts and to our official Twitter account for timely updates and information - both can be done through our website's homepage. Feel free to follow me on Twitter as well @c_j_barone.

We are fortunate to be part of the gift that is Catholic Education. With continued support from our staff and the Catholic community we serve, the gift will continue for generations to come. At BT we are in the unique position among schools, to have our namesake, His Excellency Bishop Anthony Tonnos, visit us on a regular basis. Current BT students will share in his knowledge and wisdom as we invite him to join us to celebrate the Eucharist and for other special events.

I look forward to working with everyone in our school community.
