Our Faith

Our school patron saint is St. Therese of the Child Jesus,the Little Flower and we honour her on October 1st.St. Theresa

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.

The S.A.I.N.T. movement encourages Selfless Acts of Kindness Improving the Next Tomorrow. This is an ongoing movement that is supported by staff and students alike to improve our school environment and share the message that we are all responsible to make everyday a good day for everyone.

We end every morning announcement inviting everyone to join in and say the school mantra together, " Keep calm and be kind".

Our school community participates in Social Justice activities. Regular food drives serve to support some of the community needs and an annual Lenten Penny Drive for the Food Bank or Third World countries encourages community involvement.

Our students also annually participate in a pre-Christmas activity by donating new and gently used toys to the Low Income People Involvement, known as LIPI. In turn these toys are distributed to families in our area and surrounding communities.
