Principal's Welcome Message
I feel very blessed to have joined such a wonderful school community! Thank you to all the students and staff for welcoming me to the school. I have had the opportunity to meet a few parents/guardians to date, and look forward to meeting all of you at our BBQ being held on September 20th. 

I welcome and value your dedication to excellence in Catholic education, and I look forward to meeting and working with you and your children. Similarly, I look forward to working with our trustee Mrs. Wendy Procter and other community partners who are integral to our school community.

Our students will continue to work hard on rich and engaging tasks, making use of technology at the point of instruction to reinforce the essential skills of collaboration, critical thinking, communication, creativity and inquiry throughout 2018-19.  It is our goal to prepare students for the rapidly changing, technology driven, globalized world around them. Our classroom walls and web-site will soon be filled with student work that demonstrates high levels of student thinking and achievement.  

The commitment to the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations is evident in each classroom and throughout the school community. Our staff and students receive spiritual guidance from our priest, Father Cyprian Ihedoro. All are welcome to attend and participate in the celebration of Mass every Tuesday at 11. 

I look forward to working with the very active and supportive Catholic School Council (CSC) at St James Major. The school community is very fortunate to have such a dedicated CSC that works diligently to support many aspects of school life. The first CSC meeting will be held on September 17th at 5:00 at which time the elections for the 2018-19 Catholic School Council will be held. 

We Believe, Therefore We Can!
