Principal's Message


I am honoured to be able to serve the students, staff and parents of the Holy Name community once again.  I eagerly anticipate a productive and successful year and welcome the opportunity for continued collaboration with our partners in education.

As the new school year begins, we strive to provide all of our students with a warm, welcoming and inclusive school environment, founded on the virtues of our Catholic faith. We aim to create positive, safe, and innovative learning spaces where every child is encouraged to fulfil their greatest potential and achieve success.

We are blessed with an outstanding and collaborative staff who go above and beyond to provide our students with a variety of learning opportunities and experiences, including STEM design, robotics, instrumental music, team sports and clubs, just to name a few. They are committed to providing an educational atmosphere that is Christ-centered and fosters the development of each student as a responsible Catholic citizen. They are also committed to providing a strong, sound academic program based on the Ontario Curriculum.

The Hawk spirit of teamwork and cooperation is evident on a daily basis as we try to ensure a culture of mutual respect, caring, and service to others. Our students are encouraged to set individual goals, develop good work habits, and make daily contributions that will positively impact our school climate.

Holy Name is equally blessed with a dedicated group of parents who belong to our School Advisory Council. They volunteer their time and effort to provide our students with additional resources and learning opportunities. We look forward to continuing our partnership with a collaborative spirit and a shared vision. All parents are welcome to join us at our regularly scheduled meetings each month.

Thank you for entrusting us with the care and development of what you value most in this world, your children.  We look forward to working together with you as partners in this journey. Communication is essential. Please be sure to bring any concerns forward so that they may be understood and addressed in a timely manner.

Wishing you a wonderful 2023-2024 school year!
