Philosophy Reviewed on 9-10-14
 
    St. Patrick School provides a quality Catholic education that has as its foundation the Eucharistic Spirituality of the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts. Learners are inspired to model the Hearts of Jesus and Mary through compassion and forgiveness. Learners acquire values, ethics and morals that influence their life decisions and their responsibilities to family, community and the world. Learners are challenged to collaborate in creating a better world through service for the common good. 
 
   St. Patrick School believes all children can learn, succeed and discover their own special talents. Teachers create a positive learning environment through programs and extra-curricular activities that foster life skills in leadership, critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication.
 
   St. Patrick School promotes partnerships with parents and the extended family, with the Saint Patrick Parish and with the wider local and world communities. These partnerships strengthen communication and opportunities for learners that extend beyond the classroom experience.
