St. Patrick's School Principal
Dear Friends and Families of St Patrick’s School,
During the week of April 30 to May 5, 2017 we will celebrate the significant contribution that Catholic Education has made to our community and to our province.
The theme for this year’s Catholic Education Week is: Catholic Education: Walking Forward Together
The 2017 CEW theme and its five sub-themes addresses the need for reconciliation and renewal – in our lives, with our families, in our relationships with others and in our relationship with our environment and our common global future.
Our CEW biblical quote, “Do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8), acknowledges the important role of justice and solidarity with our Indigenous peoples, our environment, the poor and marginalized, and all those who work to protect our common global future.
There are five sub-themes, aimed at helping us reflect on what Walking Forward Together asks of us.
St. Patrick's Teachers studying the creation of learning-friendly environments
The teachers at St. Patrick’s School are proud to identify two new teachers Diane Bowes and Jessica Veenbaas who have taken on the challenge of learning “environmental strategies” that will help students better regulate their classroom behaviour.
