How We Meet the Diverse Needs of Our Students
 
At the forefront of all we do is our commitment to creating a Catholic environment at our school. All our students receive a program of religious education and family life. Gospel values permeate our curriculum in all domains.
 
We constantly strive to create a safe and welcoming environment. Our code of behaviour is taught and upheld in all situations. We attempt to ensure the well-being of all of our students. We also have a safe arrival program at our school, which runs extremely well thanks to the efforts of our secretary. The ongoing diligence of our caretakers ensures us a safe physical plant and grounds.
 
Our curriculum initiatives are to raise the overall level of students’ literacy and communication skills by enhancing reading and writing proficiency and to raise the overall level of students numeracy skills and understanding of mathematics.  We offer an after school numeracy and literacy program.
 
We will continue to provide opportunities, hope and dignity for all our students to achieve success through a variety of programs.
 
St. Edward has a Peace Garden that was funded by Canada Trust Friends of the Environment Foundation.  It was stocked with native plants and attracts many species of birds.  It is maintained by parents, staff and students.
 
We have a Computer Lab, which is well used by the students to enhance their technology skills.  The lab consists of new and parent donated computers.  An emphasis is placed on the Intermediate students using technology for presentations.
 
Our students come from diverse linguistic, cultural and educational environments.  We have ELL and Special Education programs to help students who require support to succeed.
 
St. Edward offers a strong co-curricular and extra-curricular program that staff and parents coordinate.  The activities include volleyball, hockey, swimming, softball, soccer, cross-country, track & field events, W5H, chess, skating, karate, public speaking, Carnival, authors, Artists-in-schools, Scientists in school, choir, band, charity drives and a wide range of excursions.
 
We will be offering Full Day Early Learning along with Before and After School Programs beginning in September 2012.
