Schools to Believe in
In a spirit of freedom, affirmation and celebration today, we strive to… “Sustain safe school environments characterized by warmth, hospitality, good humour and joy.”
Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year.
The staff of STA strives to create a safe, peaceful school environment in which you feel comfortable, respected and nurtured and in which you can grow within the Catholic faith. At STA we work to love one another as Jesus loves us, and to make the world a better place for all. We will work with you to create a safe school. We will work to teach positive behaviour and if difficulties arise we are committed to using practices that ‘restore’ relationships and help those who are harmed.
Each year the Renfrew County Catholic District School Board chooses a portion of Our Vision to focus on. For the 2014-2015 school year each staff and student are invited to “join in a critical analysis of the arts, media and technology “that will, as Pope Francis suggests, help everyone to encounter Christ.
Pope Francis states that, “the media can help us to feel closer to one another…the world of communications can help us either to expand our knowledge or to lose our bearings.” At STA we use iPads, iPad minis, laptops, computers, smartboards, Apple TV connectivity and a variety of technology as tools to support our learning and help expand our knowledge. We invite all in the STA community to join us in this digital age as we continue to use technology as part of our learning. Thank you for being part of STA this year, as we continue to enhance well-being for our students and prepare everyone for the future!
