Holy Name of Mary is a JK – 8 school, with 9 classrooms, including 2 full day kindergarten classrooms. Our school population is approximately 200 students. We have a strong focus on faith and academic development. We work closely with our family of parishes, Holy Name of Mary, St. Joseph’s and Immaculate Conception Parishes to prepare for sacraments and foster a sense of spirituality. Academically, we are working on developing higher order thinking skills, beginning with developing strong literacy skills, including mathematical literacy in the early years, and continuing that focus throughout the students’ academic career. This year, in the junior grades, we will focus on those higher order thinking skills in mathematics and science.
We are also home to the St. Marys Childcare Centre that serves young children from infant to school-aged.
Our Catholic Schools, Your Catholic Schools
Choosing a school is one of the most important decisions you will make in your child’s life. It is the place your child will spend most of his or her day, learning important skills, interacting with other children, and growing in so many ways.
We, at the Huron Perth Catholic District School Board believe that we offer exemplary Catholic education that emphasizes strong academics, gospel values and the growth of the whole person. Catholic education fosters the search for knowledge, as a lifelong spiritual and academic quest.
Our mission and vision is to answer the gospel call by reaching out to those in our communities and beyond, not only as a community service, but also for those serving, as a necessary expression of their Christian faith.
The expectations of our graduates are described not only in terms of knowledge and skills, but in terms of values, attitudes and actions.
Look for information about our Catholic schools at local community centres, libraries and of course in all of our elementary and secondary schools.
