Welcome to St. Victor Catholic Elementary School

Whatsoever you do to the least of my brothers, that you do unto me. Matthew 24:40

St. Victor Catholic School was established as part of Ste Anne’s Catholic Church community in Mattawa Ontario. Our brand new school building was designed by Laroque and Elder Architects Inc  and was constructed by Kenalex Construction. The building has received awards for its unique design and wood construction and is easily visible from Highway 17. Our new school doors opened to students in September 2014. 

Our Official Opening

The blessing and official opening of St. Victor Catholic School was celebrated on October 23, 2014. The school blessing was officiated by Bishop Michael Mulhall and Father Mitchel Beachey. A time capsule to be opened in 2025 was placed in the front display case inside our front doors. Adorning our new school hallways is a large dreamcatcher and two totem poles created by St Victor students and various community members, led by Charlene Guilbeault.  These artifacts reflect our Aboriginal heritage as a school community.

Parental Involvement

Our St. Victor Catholic School Advisory Council is instrumental in our effort to develop a strong sense of community where all members work together to provide meaningful learning opportunities and school spirit for students. Parents' contributions and dedication have been key ingredients in making our school a success. From fundraising for various initiatives, hosting community events for parents, to providing valuable input on various school decisions, our parent council has contributed to making St. Victor Catholic School a wonderful place where students flourish and want to be.

Making a Difference

Our school community, although small, has supported a variety of local charities. Following in the example of Jesus, who showed great generosity to those in need, we have raised money for Terry Fox, the Holy Child Association, our local food bank and the North Bay Santa Fund.  Our staff members and school council members are always looking for ways to support students both emotionally and physically, always on the look-out for ways to make families’ and children’s’ lives easier.

Early Learning Kindergarten Program (ELKP)

At St Victor, we are excited to have implemented this program in September 2014.The Early Learning Kindergarten Program (ELKP) is a full-day, every day Kindergarten for four and five year olds. Class sizes are limited to approximately 26 students with an educator team of a Kindergarten Teacher and an Early Childhood Educator.  This program focusses on learning through play and inquiry while developing literacy and numeracy skills.

At St. Victor School, our hard working team of teachers, educational assistants, community partners, lunch hour supervisors, secretary and custodians is committed to nurturing the success of all students. This success refers to academic, social and spiritual success as we grow and interact as a learning community. As a team, we focus on developing a school culture of appreciating each other, showing gratitude for each member and their work and resolving conflicts in a gentle and productive manner that focusses on making amends rather than finding fault. We are also uncompromising in our promise to maintaining a safe environment for St. Victor students both emotionally and physically and hope that you will support us in our decisions to that end. All students must feel safe, accepted and valued every day to reach their full potential.

We look forward to seeing you all in our new building!

Melanie Courchesne
