St. Patrick School is located in southeast Burlington, beside St. Patrick Roman Catholic Church. The building once housed open concept classrooms and was renovated several years ago to introduce contained classrooms, along with a new gym, forum and common areas.
The school has a long history within the HCDSB and is proud home to our "Pythons".
Student Success Programs
- All Star Reading
- Before School academic program in Language and Math
- Intensive support during lunch hour homework clubs
We are an EL-K to Grade 8 school, with full day Early Learning (JK/SK) as of September 2010. Our students are encouraged to be faith centered individuals committed to life long learning, academic excellence, and to be proud of their skills and proud to be active participants in their community, demonstrating the lessons of their faith.
St. Patrick Catholic School is home to numerous clubs and teams - we are a smaller school with a very big sense of spirit and accomplishment! We offer students opportunities to join excellent sports teams (Championships in volleyball and basketball over the last two years). In addition, we offer clubs that range from choir and more artistic endeavors to Peace Team and PROP's activities that enhance our respectful and cohesive school community. We even have clubs that are student lead (like our popular LEGO club!) under teacher guidance. Out Student Council continues to be an important force in the life of St. Patrick School and its student voice in the HCDSB. Each student is honoured at the closing assembly at the close of the school year with a certificate and stickers recognizing his/her achievements above and beyond the academic.
Before and After School Programs
Y Child Care Before and After School Program
Each year teaching and administrative staff at the school revise and contribute new content to the School Improvement Plan (SIP) for that school year. The 2012-2013 school year is no exception. Our St. Patrick Catholic SIP is currently being revised and revisited based on the latest benchmark and EQAO assessments as they are released. Each SIP is edited and revised by the Principal, teaching team and parent input in an on-going process to reflect the needs and successes of the students. Please see our SIP posted on the HCDSB website.
We are proud to have continued our efforts in re-cycling this year and to implement initiatives that gained us recognition both as an Ontario ECO-SCHOOL and Bronze designation for our first year. Our goal is to continue our efforts and go for GOLD!! We will continue with our monthly foci for recycling and taking action regarding our environment.
Parent Community Involvement
We are proud to have an active Catholic School Council that meets monthly to discuss and implement initiatives that support student learning and success and that add to our great school culture. We are also fortunate to have a number of parents operating healthy snack and lunch programs and assisting with many activities both in classrooms and in the larger school setting---let us know if you wish to volunteer!!
