School History And Tradition

St. John Vianney Catholic School opened with 175 students to relieve overcrowding at St. Stephen Catholic School in September 1979 in a porta-pack on Thistledown Boulevard. Most classes were combined classes with no special education or English as a Second Language classes. As there was no gymnasium, students were bussed once a week to St. Benedict's for gym during winter. The kindergarten and library were regular sized classrooms.
In Septest-john-vianney.jpgmber 1984, St. John Vianney moved to the present location which is leased from the Toronto District School Board. The school now has Special Education, English as a Second Language classes, Instrumental Music, Vocal Music and International Language classes (Italian) which are part of the daily curriculum.
St. John Vianney was born in France in 1786. His goal was to be a priest in order to serve God. He died at the age of 73 having spent his life as a devoted priest who touched the lives of many individuals. His feast day is celebrated August 8th. Staff and students try to model St. John's example by helping others within the community through annual activities such as food drives and charitable associations. Students help teachers to run and organize play days, act as lunch monitors, school leaders and school patrollers. Parents and staff work cooperatively to maintain a Catholic learning environment.
