Our Educational Philosophy

St. Patrick's offers a challenging and dynamic academic program that follows the curriculum outlined by the British Columbia Ministry of Education. In this positive, faith-based learning environment, students engage in learning as a life-long process, becoming independent and critical thinkers who accept responsibility for themselves and their community. Our extracurricular program extends learning opportunities, inspiring students to explore their potential in athletics, fine arts and community service. St. Patrick's is a nurturing place where:

  • Students and staff respect and treat others with equal dignity before God.
  • Interpersonal relationships mature through the ongoing development of skills such as communication, conflict resolutions, cooperation and problem solving.
  • Trust and support enhance the formation of the whole, compassionate person and the growth of the community.


When I came to St. Patrick's I was a very shy girl; it was difficult for me to leave my mother’s safe and loving arms. St. Patrick's, especially the teachers, helped me with this. Now that I’m in grade seven I look back and realize there was never once that I felt ignored or uncared for. I will never forget St. Patrick's and what it did for me.

At St. Patrick’s we’ve always been encouraged to participate in school sports and clubs. It is a loving place where we are all accepted for who we are. Leaving the St. Patrick’s community is going to be very hard. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my experience here and hopefully you will too!

St. Patrick’s School has opened my mind to learn new things and to meet new people. St. Patrick’s is like family; all the people have great spirit and all the teachers are like second parents. The teachers are so understanding that I feel confident asking a question if I don’t understand something. My relationship with God has become stronger since the first day I came to St. Patrick’s.
