On Monday, the Grades 7 and 8 community hosted some special visitors, eight young women from Northern Ireland.

On Thursday, March 9, Grade 6 students heard from Dr. Leona Ba on "Continuing to Build a Culture of Inclusion at St. Patrick's." Drawing upon her 18 years of experience working with organizations and teams, nationally and internationally, to improve their performance, Dr. Ba engaged our students in reflecting upon their multiple talents and personal experiences and the ways in which they contribute to the rich tapestry of community we have here at St. Patrick's. Dr. Ba's presentation reinforced students' ongoing consideration of the importance of non-cognitive skills in their lives.
Exceptional Literacy is the intention and the destination of the educational journey at St. Patrick’s. It prepares each student to seek new knowledge, to fulfill a greater sense of personal responsibility, and to understand and communicate effectively with others. At the forefront of this effort are our talented and dedicated faculty and staff, working in close partnership with families to support each student.
