Principal’s Message

Welcome to the St. James Catholic Elementary School website!

We are a caring, welcoming and faith-filled community located in Seaforth, Ontario, where we are committed to building and maintaining strong relationships between home, school and parish to support the learning and growth of all students. Our Catholic faith is integrated into learning throughout the day so that students not only learn their faith but also put their faith into action by becoming living witnesses to the Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectations.

Our multi-year spiritual theme of “Together on the Journey: Encounter-Accompany-Transform” is the perfect theme as we grow together in faith and learning during a pandemic.

At St. James, we believe everyone has the right to experience a safe and inclusive environment and that every person must be treated with dignity and respect. We understand that each student is unique and we celebrate individual qualities, knowing that diversity is a gift from God. Each person in our school community enriches our faith filled environment with his or her own unique gifts and talents.

Each week, Mrs. Meier will share a Parental Week-at-a-Glance (WAAG) on my behalf through School Messenger. This is a weekly update on current events and upcoming ones as well. We welcome you to join us in our monthly Masses and other special events throughout the year. Please like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter to get connected and keep up with all of the exciting activities at St. James.

We appreciate your support and prayers and look forward to working together.

God Bless,

Ms. Dianne De Jong
