School History And Tradition

The history of All Saints Catholic Elementary School and All Saints Roman Catholic Church are closely linked.  The school opened in the fall of 1962, and the parish had its first mass in the school yard on June 21, 1964. It would be three more years until the church was completed under the direction of Father Martin O'Grady, with the first mass being celebrated on the feast of All Saints Day, November 1, 1967. The tradition of this feast day continues to be an event of special celebration for both the Church and the school community. All Saints School


The school was small when it first opened, but grew quickly to an enrolment of more than 750 students reflecting a cultural mix of many nationalities.  In November 2003 a new, state of the art facility opened featuring bright and spacious classrooms, heated flooring in the kindergarten classrooms, a fully integrated computer lab, modern gymnasium and sunlit atrium.  As of 2012, the school celebrated its 50th Anniversary serving the community.

athletic achievement, and the motto “Love and Growth”. All Saints Catholic Elementary School is a caring school and community environment which stresses tolerance and acceptance of others, high academic standards and commitment to our Catholic faith.   Graduates of Catholic schools are expected to follow a distinctive set of expectations not only in terms of knowledge and skills, but also in terms of values, attitudes and actions.  Catholic education fosters the search for knowledge as a lifelong spiritual and academic journey and these same expectations guide our programs at All Saints Catholic Elementary School.  Graduates are expected to be discerning believers who celebrate the signs and sacred mystery of God’s presence through word, worship and witness; effective communicators; reflective, creative, self-directed, responsible and lifelong thinkers; collaborative contributors; caring family members and lastly responsible citizens.
