​​​​Principal's Message


​​Welcome to the St. Patrick's Catholic School website.  Since 1857, our school has had a strong tradition of Catholic education and the community support of the school and parish is truly one of our greatest blessings.  Our mission is to nurture a Christ-Centred environment for all; to provide student-focused learning opportunities; and to support the growth of the whole person.

As a school of the Huron Perth Catholic District School Board we join a larger Catholic Community of Caring.  Through our interactions with each other, and our lessons we emphasize the virtues of caring, respect, responsibility, trust and family through our religion programs, school and class masses and in our special community projects.  In keeping with this fine tradition we have selected our school motto as: "Hold High the Light of Christ."

We hope that parents and the community find this website a useful source of information about our school.  Please find information about Our School, Our Families, Faith and Learning and Quick Links as well as School News, School Bus Information and Calendar of Events to support your child's learning.  This site, along with weekly e-blasts and the school's Twitter account will provide a rich profile of the events and people that create St. Patrick's school community.  Parents and guardians are invited to join us in any of our monthly masses, or drop in at one of our up-coming community functions.  We welcome your comments and suggestions and we look forward to serving this community for years to come!

With Peace,

Paula Nowak-Droog, Principal​
