Principal's Welcome Message

A special welcome to all students and parents/guardians to a new school year.

It is a privilege and an honour to serve as the principal at St. Joachim Catholic Elementary School. St. Joachim Catholic Elementary School, in partnership with home, parish and community is dedicated to providing a vibrant, Christ-centred learning environment fostering the pursuit of our faith and academic excellence. Together, we enjoy a shared purpose of helping the children in our care to be the best they can be - spiritually, intellectually, emotionally and socially. We will continue to co-operatively foster a safe and faith-filled learning and living environment, in which children are always first. Together, we can inspire our students to develop the self-discipline and commitment to reach their full potential as citizens and lifelong learners.

We are proud of our accomplishments in our Catholic School Community, which include both academic and extra-curricular. All staff members are committed to modelling and teaching our Catholic faith and in developing the whole child. We are dedicated to providing our students with a learning environment that is nurturing, challenging and an extension of the Catholic values that parents instill at home. At St. Joachim we will continue to strive to bring out the best in all our students through living our school motto: Heart to hand...through Christ...we belong.

With God as our guide, I look forward to supporting the students, parents, staff and parish of the St. Joachim Catholic Elementary School community.

Wishing you a successful school year.
May God Bless!

Mrs. N. Ciapanna
