Who We Are...
Cardinal Léger Catholic School provides a Catholic education which focuses on Christ's life as intrinsic to the entire curriculum. Our school is not just a school where academic learning occurs, but more importantly it is a place to teach and model Christian living. We respect individual differences, individual rights and individual responsibilities in following God's plan for us, with the guidance of His church. Love of God, love of others and love of self as the basic means by which we are to live our lives and conduct our school activities. Our school provides an inviting, safe and welcoming environment where each child can learn, grow and develop.
 
 
How We Meet the Diverse Needs of Our Students
Cardinal Léger Catholic School implements the Board's mission of providing a Catholic education which focuses on Christ's life as intrinsic to the entire curriculum. Our school is not just a school where academic learning occurs, but more importantly it is a place to teach and model Christian living. We respect individual differences, individual rights and individual responsibilities in following God's plan for us, with the guidance of His church. Love of God, love of others and love of self as the basic means by which we are to live our lives and conduct our school activities.
 
Our school board has initiated support documents in keeping with the Ministry of Education directives.
Our school provides an inviting, safe and welcoming environment where each child can learn, grow and develop. We provide a safe arrival program, ensuring that each child is at school or is safely at home by phoning to verify the presence of each child daily.
 
In addition to the regular subjects taught our school provides:
  • Physical and health education
  • Library studies in our school library
  • Computer lab studies in our school library
  • Individual computer programming in each classroom
  • Vocal music (an itinerant teacher) junior kindergarten to grade 6
  • Instrumental music grade 7-8
  • French as a second language grade 1-8
  • Special education for those in need grade 1-8
  • Gifted education (weekly program) at St. Ignatius of Loyola Catholic School
In addition to the regular program, teachers often modify the curriculum to meet individual needs. They meet with other staff and resource personnel to support student learning and foster success. As well as meeting academic needs we also seek to develop the student in the area of athletics and the arts, all of which is within our Catholic school environment. We have regular house league sports at recesses for all children to participate for good fun and friendly competition. Our school teams in track and field, softball, soccer, volleyball and basketball continue to perform well in local and regional competition. Cardinal Léger Catholic School is known as one of the greatest sports schools in the city.
 
In the arts, we have presented a play of the life of Cardinal Léger, a passion play during the Easter season, Christmas concerts, spring concerts and talent show at the fun fair. We also have a primary/junior choir, a chess team and W5H teams. Our staff has been most generous with their time to coach, direct and supervise these various activities.
