A message from administration 

St. Catherine of Siena Catholic School is a vibrant learning community where all children are supported in developing to their fullest potential in a safe and nurturing environment.  It is a Catholic learning community built on the fundamental partnership between home, school and parish. 

As parents/guardians you have chosen to provide your children with a Catholic education – an education which fosters and nurtures the search and acquisition of knowledge as a spiritual and academic journey; an education which views human life as the integrated parts of body, mind and spirit.  At St. Catherine of Siena Catholic School, we celebrate spirituality through achieving, believing and striving to be the best we can in an inclusive Catholic environment reflective of our Catholic traditions. 

The St. Catherine of Siena Catholic School Community is committed to maintaining high academic standards throughout each grade, as well as promoting responsible and respectful behaviour. At all times we are expected to do our best to demonstrate our love for God by respecting each other and trying our best to achieve the expectations of our parents, teachers and our faith. We encourage students to get involved in all aspects of their school community – academics, extra- and co-curricular and service. This helps to build self-confidence and a sense of value and purpose, as well as promoting positive relationships among all students.  We manage student discipline in a Progressive and Restorative approach, giving the students the tools they need to make amends for mistakes, while at the same time serving appropriate consequences for their actions. We believe in honesty, responsibility and accountability for our actions. 

This Catholic School Agenda provides our students and parents with important information about our school community.  As well, it has been developed to help parents and educators work together to fully support the education and faith development of Catholic students.  Consistent and daily use of the agenda will assist students in developing their organizational skills as well as support learning success.  The agenda is an excellent communication tool between home and school – please support your children in their daily use of it. We also encourage families to check the school website on a regular basis for updated monthly calendars, messages from the office and updates on what is happening in your child’s classroom. 

Best wishes for a very successful school year. 

Sincerely,

Ms. K. Hadden, 
Principal

 

Our faith

Students embrace the Catholic Church's renewed efforts to meet the spiritual needs of today's society, as witnesses to the Gospel values in their everyday lives.

Yes, Catholic schools are different. Each student in our Catholic learning community embodies excellence and equity by embracing the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations - to be:

  • A discerning believer;
  • An effective communicator;
  • A reflective, creative and holistic thinker;
  • A self-directed, responsible lifelong learner;
  • A collaborative contributor;
  • A caring family member; and
  • A responsible citizen.

People choose Catholic schools as an extension of their families. They want the values taught at home to be witnessed and lived at school. This is precisely what we offer in a Catholic school community.

Family of schools

St. Catherine of Siena Catholic School belongs to the Notre Dame Catholic Secondary School family of schools. From time to time, our students will visit Notre Dame Catholic Secondary School for plays, presentations or to tour the school if they are transitioning to secondary school.

Our intermediate students also have opportunities to work in collaboration with secondary students on assignments such as media studies or robotics.
