Monsignor Doyle Catholic Secondary SchoolEdit profile
Monsignor Doyle Catholic Secondary School is a Catholic High School in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada which opened in 1976 as a junior high school, and is the second smallest Catholic secondary school of the Waterloo Catholic District School Board. In the mid 1980s, Catholic education received full funding and all the Catholic junior high schools in Waterloo Region converted to high schools teaching grade 9 - 12 and OAC. The school bears its name after Monsignor E.A. Doyle, who was a much beloved and well-respected pastor of Cambridge. He was a man of religious commitment and in recognition of his many educational contributions, the school was named in his honor. School teams are known as the "Doyle" Mustangs and are known for their exceptional performance in Badminton, Wrestling, Soccer, and Volleyball. The school has received public attention several times over the years due to an Anti-Bullying initiative run by the school's leadership program which saw the school participate in Family Channels Stand Up Wave. CTV also arrived for the banning, and subsequent un-banning of girls shorts in early fall 2009, caused by female students rolling up and hemming the shorts. In mid-2007 the school saw a lockdown which lasted 2 hours. It is home to a generally large European and Newfoundlander population, and is one of the two Catholic High Schools in Cambridge, drawing students from most of South Western Galt. In 2006, the school received an addition onto the back of the school, adding twelve classrooms and a second story, which removed the 12 portables that previously littered the area. The school's student council has worked towards creating better school spirit by pushing for a uniform free week, as well as a second semi-formal.
