Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to the St. Aloysius Catholic Elementary School website. This website is intended to provide information that will help our school community become more familiar with all of the many activities and opportunities offered to the students at St. Aloysius. We hope that you will take the time to visit this site on a regular basis.

A warm welcome back to all students, staff and parents in the St. Aloysius community. Our school is continuing to grow and for the 2019-2020 school year we have added another 3 portables to accommodate the growing population. We are happy to announce that the school wide program, “The Umbrella Project” (year 2) will be taught and practiced in every grade and empowering students to choose emotional well being is the goal. This program focuses on many essential skills (for example gratitude and kindness) that support well being.

Included in our school community is our school parish, St. Aloysius Church. Under the guidance and leadership of Father Melvin Pinto, the students will have the opportunity to grow and flourish through liturgical celebrations, the sacraments and our daily life.

Our dedicated staff are very caring and committed individuals, and developing the literacy and numeracy skills of our students is the focus of our programs. However, one cannot attain skills in isolation. I believe that we are part of a learning community that must provide a safe and secure environment and foster character attributes, such as respect and responsibility while improving student achievement.

Each day brings new challenges and opportunities for all of us, and together we become better for these experiences. Welcoming and supporting parents to take an active role in their child’s learning is a key role of a school administrator. I welcome parent contacts and endeavour to make your child’s years at St. Aloysius Catholic School successful.

Yours in Christ,
Janet Foote
