I remember the first time I set foot in to St. Patrick’s with my daughter. We had toured a couple other schools and were pleased with them and being first-born in the family, I was extremely cautious with any school we toured because this would be the place she would spend the most time outside of her home for many years to come so it had to be just right.
So we went in for her visit and it’s so hard to describe the feeling in words but it was simply magical! I felt an overwhelming rush of “this is it - this is THE school” and I could envision her there through Grade 8. The warmth of every person we came in contact with inside the walls of St. Patrick’s ﹘ from Mr. Barrett to Mr. Giguere to her would-be teachers Mrs. Gunja and Ms. Pereira - to the flow of the school and the vibe of the classrooms being so inviting while set up for greatness - to the messages of love and openness St. Patrick’s exudes along with a top-notch quality education focused on academics - the thing that sealed the deal was the fact that St. Patrick’s believes your child’s schools should be focused not only on academics but also in creating a community of empathetic, open-minded, caring, loving, and good children because we want to create a class of children who give back to their community and have friends and support during their journey of learning and excelling.
I knew St. Patrick’s would give my daughter the full package of what she will need through the rest of her life, because any child can learn academics but becoming a successful individual in life means you need to be well-rounded. It takes a very special school like St. Patrick’s to embrace and show students how to become the best they can be and bring goodness, kindness, love, faith, philanthropic, and academic skill sets into society. I consider St. Patrick’s part of our family and am so grateful for the years we’ve had and the years to come.
