Principal's Welcome Message

Welcome to the St. Augustine School website.

I would like to share a little about our wonderful school community. We are a Catholic faith community committed to learning about God’s message of peace and love through the teachings of Jesus Christ, Our Lord.

St. Augustine Catholic Elementary School is the oldest school in the Hamilton Diocese. It is quaintly, nestled at the bottom of the Sydenham Hill and conveniently located near the heart of vibrant Dundas.

This lovely school community has dedicated and caring staff to help our students grow spiritually, academically and socially. We strive to meet the needs of all our children and give of our time to provide many extra-curricular activities during recesses, lunch hours and after school.

Our students are kind and respectful and each one has unique God-given talents and gifts to share and make this school a great place to work and learn.

Our Catholic school community is blessed to be in such close proximity to a parish. We have a very active parish-school partnership with Father Whitfield and the staff of St. Augustine Parish.
They offer a strong support to our faith commitment and sacramental programs.

St. Augustine School enjoys a supportive partnership with our Catholic School Council working together to achieve our common goals. Parents serve on committees and assist with activities.

Our school prides itself in its promotion of building a community among all the stakeholders. We are very proud of achievements as we continue to strive for excellence and success to be a faith-filled witness of Christ. Our hope is that you will feel the school spirit every time that you walk through our door way.

The staff at St. Augustine is always working hard to better identify our priorities in the various areas so that we can work to meet our goal of excellence in literacy and numeracy as well as the promotion of team building and assessments. We will continue to use data to inform our decision making and develop our Catholic Professional Learning Communities as we continually work to improve student performance. Our goal is to work together with our parent and parish communities to create Catholic Leaders of tomorrow.

Yours in Christ,

Mrs. J. Cannon,
St. Augustine Catholic Elementary School
