Welcome to St. Theresa
Striving to maintain the integrity and well-being of our students and their school community, according to the values of the Gospel.
St. Theresa was first opened in 1997 as a Junior Kindergarten to grade two school in Corbeil. The school grew by one grade until it included grade six in 2001. The students actively participate in academic and extracurricular programs such as the, the choir, volleyball, peer helpers, cross country running teams, skating and gymnastics lessons by qualified instructors at a local club. The students participate in liturgical celebrations at school. Parents have an opportunity to become engaged in a variety of activities: the annual Thanksgiving Dinner, library helpers, Book Fairs, classroom helpers, fund raising, educational outings and the Catholic School Advisory Council. Our school community moved to a newly built facility in September 2006.
Balanced School Day
In September 2007, students at St. Theresa School were introduced to a new approach to school organization called the Balanced School Day. Essentially, this approach divides the school day into three large instructional periods of one hundred minutes, separated by two nutrition/play periods of a combined forty minutes.

Our Catholic Faith
Our school patron saint is St. Therese of the Child Jesus,the Little Flower and we honour her on October 1st.
Born at Alençon, France on January 2, 1873
Died at Lisieux, France on September 30, 1897
Canonized by Pope Pius XI 1925
Saint Theresa of the Child Jesus, one of the most instantly popular saints of the twentieth century, was canonized less than thirty years after her death at the age of twenty-four.
A principle reason for her great appeal to ordinary Catholics was her "Little Way" to holiness -- her example of achieving sanctity, not through undertaking great deeds, but through personal devotion and dedication. Before she passed away, she promised to send roses as a sign of her intercession and this led to the affectionate nickname, the "Little Flower". Her shrine at Lisieux, France, is still one of the most popular pilgrimage sites in Europe.
Our school community has many opportunities to follow St. Theresa's example. Our students are involved in the planning of liturgical services by preparing hymns and special intentions.The junior grade students support the younger ones by volunteering to be peer helpers. They provide helping hands in the kindergarten class during lunchtime, during special events and during recesses.
