Greetings!  I am very blessed to be the Principal at St. Mary's Catholic School, in partnership with students, staff, parents, parish and community.

Catholic education nurtures the growth and development of children and youth in a caring, Christ-centred learning environment.  Our Catholic roots are the foundation on which everything is built, from academics, to extra-curricular activities to daily learning opportunities, special events for families, etc. The Ontario Curriculum meshed with the Ontario Graduate Expectations supports and enables our students to receive an education that prepares them to be confident, capable and faith-filled citizens.  We encourage everyone to put their faith into action in everyday experiences.  What would Jesus do and how can we be more Christ-like in our interactions with others?  We support one another: students, staff, parents, guardians, parish community members and the community of Goderich.  We embrace the gifts and needs of everyone We are blessed to connect in faith and life, and we pray that our school provides the experiences to prepare our students for the future in the best ways possible. "It takes a village" to raise each child.

Let us pray for the blessings of our Lord, to support us in our commitment to nurture the spiritual and academic growth of our students.

Prions ensemble pour les bénédictions de Dieu afin qu'il puisse nous aider dans notre engagement à nourrir la croissance spirituelle et académique de nos élèves.

May God Bless you all,

Mrs. Gaylene Hagarty​
