Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,
Welcome to a new school year, a new beginning and a renewed journey with our St. Matthew Catholic community. St. Matthew School is a community and is considered a family. We strive to develop the full potential of each child and continue to support and guide our students with their own faith journey.
Our Division theme:
"Lord, light the path and I will lead others.”
“Seigneur, illumine le chemin et guiderai les autres.”
Our staff are looking forward to providing a positive, safe and caring environment, where all students are welcome, respected and belong. The staff is very excited for the coming school year that promises new opportunities for learning and growing, especially in our Faith.
We wish to welcome our new staff, parents and students to our community. I wish to welcome parents and students who have been a part of the journey in education at St. Matthew Catholic School.
Included in our journey and school community is our parish, St. Matthew Parish. Under the guidance of our parish priest, staff, students and parents will have many opportunities to grow and learn Faith.
Please take the time to explore our website, Instagram and Facebook page to learn more about the school, our students, the staff, our parish and opportunities for parents and community members within our school.
It is an honour and privilege to be able to work with the school community and we look forward to a great 2019/2020 school year.
Prayer for the Beginning of the New School Year
Dear Lord, as we begin this new school year, we gather
once again as your community of believers.
We thank you for the energy and the spirit that you renewed
in us through the summer months.
We thank you for the time to enjoy our family and
friends and to reflect on what is important in our lives.
Let this year be marked by enthusiasm and love so that,
with the inspiration of your Spirit, we may continue
to grow in our faith.
Help us to fulfill Your hope for us with honest intentions
and works of faith.
Let us be gentle with ourselves and bring laughter, joy
and love for others.
We ask this in your name.
