Welcome Message from the Director of Education

September 01, 2023

TW - Welcome Message.pngDear families,

On behalf of our Board of Trustees and the Senior Leadership team, I am excited to welcome back students and staff to another year of faith-filled learning.

I am also pleased to announce that our enrollment has significantly increased for the 2023/2024 school year.  As a result, it is an honour to welcome new students and staff.  Thank you for trusting our board with your children's Catholic education.

Blessed Beyond Belief

This year marks year four of our five pastoral themes. “Blessed Beyond Belief" is this year's theme, which calls us to see all of God's goodness that surround us. I invite you to learn more about our pastoral themes and how they are embedded in all that we do in our school communities.

In closing, as a Catholic board, we are blessed to see all of God's goodness, and this reminds us that His arms will always be open to us with mercy, grace, guidance, and unwavering strength and love.  It is through this lens where our board builds faith-filled learning communities, where each member is loved, inspired, and successful.​​
