I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to the St Patrick’s community! We have closed off yet another school year and I cannot tell you how proud I am of all that we have accomplished. I would like to congratulate the graduating the Class of 2022! What a beautiful ceremony we had yesterday and what a pleasure to have everyone back in the building to share in this moment. To our Intermediate students transitioning to High School, you are ready for the challenges to come and will be welcomed with open arms in the fall.
I want to thank our dedicated staff for navigating the many, many changes this year. Just when we figured out the new routines, we changed them and you did so without skipping a beat.
To our retiring staff: Mr. Michael Bellefeuille, Mrs. Claudia Galvis and Mme Johanne Ledoux - we thank you for your service to the Ottawa Catholic School Board and your commitment to your students throughout your years.
We also bid adieu to VP Daria Borland, who has been a member of the St Patrick’s Administration Team for the past 5 years. Mrs Borland is moving on to All Saints High School where she will be Vice-Principal this fall.
Whether you are staying nearby or traveling this summer, please take care of yourself and rest up! We look forward to welcoming back our returning families on September 6th, 2022.
Stay Safe and Be Well!
Mme Al Koura
Catholic School Council
