​​​​​​​​​​​​Principal's Message

Welcome to our website!

A warm welcome to all our families and their children as we commence another year of learning at St. Patrick's and St. Columban Catholic Schools. We are very excited to see many new smiling faces join our school community and look forward to providing an enriching experience in Catholic Education.

The Huron-Perth Catholic District School Board has a rich history of providing quality Catholic education to our students. We are proud of our history and our accomplishments and know that our future is full of hope.  As we commence our year with the theme of “Living as Joyful Disciples", we believe that Huron-Perth Catholic Schools are:

PLACES OF BELONGING. 

PLACES OF RESPECT AND JUSTICE.

PLACES OF HOPE.

PLACES OF CELEBRATION.

PLACES OF QUALITY LEARNING AND TEACHING.

Our Catholic roots serve as the foundation for everything that we do at St. Patrick's and St. Columban. We value our partnership with the parish and our families as we collaborate to bring out the individual gifts in each of our children.  We encourage each member of our community to act with kindness and generosity as we strive to live the Gospel Values in our school.  We are, above all else, a community who cares for one another and supports our families.

When you enter our schools, you will notice a happy and welcoming environment.

Our school communities of Grade JK-8 have grown again this year and our combined school community consists of over 260 students. We have 30 staff members who take pride in ensuring that every student is learning in a safe and healthy environment. Thank you to all of our families for your ongoing support of our Catholic Schools.

Our highly qualified teachers help to make St. Patrick's and St. Columban achieving schools in both Huron and Perth Counties!  We are committed to academic excellence through our focus on literacy, mathematics and well-being.  Our classrooms are collaborative learning communities with students of all abilities learning together in an inclusive classroom setting. 

We welcome you to join us in our monthly Masses, prayer services, open houses, assemblies and other events throughout the year. We appreciate your support and prayers. We look forward to serving this community for years to come.  

Welcome to St. Patrick's and St. Columban Catholic Schools
