Principal’s Message

September 2019

Dear Students and Families of St. Patrick’s Catholic School, 

Welcome to St. Pat’s!  We invite you to join us as we journey through this year “Igniting Hope” in all that we do! 

This year’s theme “Igniting Hope” reminds us of the importance that Catholic schools have in modelling the transforming love of God.  On a daily basis we learn to demonstrate the joy of believing, being witness to the Good News, and living our lives as hopeful & joyful disciples of Christ.  At St. Patrick’s, we emphasize the virtues of caring, respect, responsibility, faith and family, always reminding ourselves to consider the needs of others and how our actions impact the world and those directly around us.  We are very proud of our efforts to promote peace, hope, love and kindness and we will continue to make this a priority at St. Pat’s! 

Our school community is proud to continue the strong partnership among parish, parents and school that has been established for many years.  We are deeply grounded in our rich faith traditions of the Catholic Church and are a part of a larger learning community in the Huron-Perth Catholic District School Board.  We are proud of our academic focus which connects our lessons, our religious study, and our community projects as we follow our school motto: “Hold High the Light of Christ”. 

You will find information about Our School, Our Families, Faith and Learning, School News, School Bus Information and Calendar of Events to support your child’s learning on this website. As well, our weekly e-blasts and Twitter will provide a rich profile of the events and people that create St. Patrick’s school community. 

Parents and guardians are invited to join us in any of our monthly masses, or drop in at one of our up-coming community functions.  We welcome your support and prayers. We look forward to serving this community for years to come! 

God Bless.
