St. Peter Elementary School

Our School

We are in our third year at this new school location, on Dixon Drive. Prior to the opening of this site, St. Peter School enjoyed thirty years of history at the previous location on Woodward Avenue. We take pride in our beautiful building with a double gym, a large stage, and a new computer lab. We also have a beautiful library, filled with many of our old favourites, as well as some new selections.
 
We are so blessed to have a caring and nurturing staff who model our Catholic values and support the children, both spiritually and academically. We also have very active parent volunteers, and a dedicated  Catholic School Council. We also appreciate the entire Pastoral team at Holy Rosary Parish, who provides guidance and dedication to the faith development of our students. We appreciate their assistance and the spiritual presence that they bring to our school community.
 
As we move forward at this new location, we continue to foster community partnerships, and strong traditions that deepen as new children, parents, and staff continue to join in our larger school family. We celebrate and give thanks to all who participate in cultivating the close working relationship that exists between home, school and church.
