We are dedicated to nurturing our students as they grow spiritually, intellectually, and academically, healthy in mind, body and soul.
The St. Rose of Lima pastoral team and the Rosary Apostolate in the Schools both support our ongoing efforts to help our students develop spiritually. We often have liturgies and celebrations incorporating prayer, music, and student participation. Our closing mass in June is our opportunity to recognize and congratulate the many students who have celebrated the sacraments in their parishes during the school year.
Our students enjoy a challenging school program. The teachers work collaboratively with their division members, special program and itinerant teachers. This ensures that we offer our students the challenges, supports and assistance needed to achieve success. Our classroom texts and materials are current and include materials for students with special needs and “English as a Second Language” students. Our Library Technician is here for two and a half days each week, offering the Junior Kindergarten to Gr. 6 students the opportunity to explore written material and make use of our computer lab. All classes are welcome to make use of the computer lab during the remainder of the week.
We have incorporated “Daily Physical Activity” into our very full days, as well as the regular physical education program. Students are offered the opportunity to join school teams and/or take part in house league games. We are blessed with a large, grassy playground with space enough for a variety of recess and lunch time games.
St. Victor’s has a thriving group of parents, grandparents, relatives and former students who volunteer their time and talents. We match their skills with our needs and are a richer community for having them with us. Volunteers take part in our Catholic School Advisory Council, distribute pizza, assist in the classrooms and on excursions, work with students and staff in our Professional Learning Community activities, and assist with fund-raising.
We endeavour to be responsible community members. We do fund-raise for charitable causes and have gathered food and gifts for the need in our city. As well, one of our parents spearheads our “Thinkgreen” recycling program. Our community is asked to send us used toner cartridges which we ship to “Thingreen”. This diverts waste from landfills, raises money for school purposes, and supports “Thinkgreen’s” tree planting program.
St. Victor’s Catholic School is thriving and we welcome you to join us!
