September was a great start to our school year. It was a pleasure to meet so many families at our parent night. Our first Catholic Parent School’s Council meeting was held on Sept. 26th. We welcomed back a strong contingent to represent the parent community. Nick DeMelo will serve as Council Chairperson this year.
September had our students participating in 3 pitch, soccer and ultimate frisbee tournaments. Thank you to the teachers for their commitment to enriching the student experience beyond the classroom.
With the support of Father Stephen, the school is working to strengthen the relationship between school and church to nurture and develop the faith of our students and staff. We are beginning our preparation for First Holy Communion and Confirmation.Principal

Safe Arrival – If your child/ren are absent from school or late please call the school at 519-662-1734 and leave a message on the attendance line. This will alleviate unnecessary phone calls and worry.
Portable – Our new Portable has arrived. We hope to have occupancy within a weeks’ time.
Before School Yard Supervision – Yard supervision begins at 8:45 a.m. With your child/ren safety in mind we encourage parents not to drop their children off before this time. When arriving before the morning bell all students are to go the play yard at the back of the school to wait for the bell.
Hot Lunch – We are waiting for finalization of our agreement with Hot Lunch. We hope to have a confirmed start date in the weeks to come.
Busing –The red bus schedule has been changed by the transportation company which has resulted in it arriving a half hour late to pick the student up at the school. We have been told this was an oversight and will be corrected. Students taking the red bus will wait inside the school for their bus to arrive.
Student Absence – When calling in your child/rens absence please provide a reason. The school is required by the Ministry of Education to record the reason for a student’s absence.
