Every year, our board chooses a theme, which serves as a pastoral inspiration for our school and board office communities. Living in Hope - Grounded in Faith is the board's theme for the 2013-2014 school year. What does this theme mean to our students, families and staff? Faith and hope are closely connected because our true hope comes from believing in the promise of God. Hope, as a virtue, is much more than simple optimism. To hope is to be nurtured and sustained by a great belief, by a great ideal that is based upon a promise made by God. To hope is to live in the belief that, ultimately God will give us a world where love and peace will triumph. Hope is visible in our Catholic schools whenever we find prayer, and work for peace and justice.
Living in Hope - Grounded in Faith

The amount of school traffic during drop off and pick up times, combined with possible exposure to dangerous driver behaviour can put children at risk. St. Mary’s School is designated as a ‘walking school’, stipulating children walk to and from school. Many parents choose to drive their child, however, encouraging students to be active by walking to school is better for their health and better for the environment. The reduction in cars in the school parking lot reduces the risk of accidents and children will be easier to see. Read more>
