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.
