Toronto Catholic District School Board

Principal`s Message

St. Demetrius School  is an Eastern Rite school within the Toronto Catholic District School Board that has been in existence for 41 years. It offers classes from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8, delivering the Ontario curriculum with an enriched program that includes the instruction of the Ukrainian language from Kindergarten to Grade 8, and the integration of Eastern Rite religious and cultural traditions. At. St. Demetrius School we provide a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment  for our students, so that they may work and grow to their full potential. High academic and behavioural standards are set for all, and the Catholic Graduate Expectations as well as the Virtues are emphasized daily and integrated into curriculum programs . We aspire to nourish our students in the Eastern RiteCatholic  faith to become discerning believers , effective communicators, creative  thinkers, good family members, and responsible citizens.

Through the precise and collaborative work of the entire staff, St. Demetrius students achieve at high levels in such areas as EQAO provincial assessments. To see the most recent EQAO results, please click here.

Local and international community outreach, for example, the support of local food banks, and the Dzherelo Children's Center in Lviv, Ukraine, are a focus of  student fundraising and community work, as is the development of student leadership through an active Student Council that seeks also to raise school spirit  through  a variety of activities.

A collaborative Catholic School Advisory Council seeks to enhance and support school programs through the engagement of the parent community in fundraising and active involvement in volunteer activity. The School Council also provides funds that are used for the classroom, curriculum delivery and co-curricular activities such as sports and Eastern Rite celebrations  ex. Mykolaj.  It is directly engaged in supporting the school's literacy and safe schools initiatives.
