on whose territory we pray, learn, play and work.

About Our Awesome School

WELCOME TO OUR LADY OF PEACE SCHOOL! 

At Our Lady of Peace Catholic School, we continue to build on the tradition of faith, love and peace through knowledge which the school community has been establishing for over 50 years, in collaboration with St. Martin de Porres Parish. 

In partnership with our families and the Parish we are committed to your child's growth, spiritually, emotionally, socially and academically.  We strive to ensure that all OLP community members – students, families and staff – feel supported and nurtured.

Every child is blessed with unique gifts and talents and at Our Lady of Peace we are always looking for opportunities to support and encourage each student to explore, develop and demonstrate their God-given gifts.  This year, each student will set individual goals in Language and Math and with teacher guidance, build a plan to work to achieve these goals.  We will also be setting class goals as we explore what it means to be a community, to "Be Peace", as we journey to become productive Catholic Graduates.  We continue to work on providing each student with rich, meaningful tasks to deepen their learning, increase their engagement and become all they can be. 

A Safe and Caring School Environment
We work hard everyday to support a safe and caring environment where we respect and care for each other.  We encourage students to take responsibility for all their actions, in words and deeds.  We use a restorative justice approach to problem solving where all parties are given an opportunity to have a voice in the solution.  

Wearing clothing with culturally insensitive or inappropriate messages or images is not in keeping with our Catholic value of promoting a safe, caring and inclusive school community. All students are encouraged to wear respectful clothing at all times when on school property or on a school related activity.

Your feedback is important to us at OLP and we strive to keep the lines of communication open.  Please feel free to contact your child's teacher with any compliments, questions or concerns.  If you wish to meet with your child's teacher please record your request in your child's agenda or call the school.  Your child's teacher will contact you to arrange a mutually convenient time for a conversation or meeting.  We look forward to working with each of you.   

Attendance

Your child's safety and security is one of our primary concerns.  Please ensure that you contact the office to report any absences, late arrivals or early departures.  We thank you in advance for checking in at the office if your child is arriving late or is being picked up prior to dismissal.  If your child is being picked up by someone other than yourself, you must contact the office to provide details.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation in maintaining all our students' safety.

School Hours

Please ensure that your children are in the schoolyard before the bell rings at 9:15 a.m. Outside supervision is provided from 9:00 – 9:15 a.m. For safety, walkers should not arrive at school prior to 9 a.m. as there is no yard supervision available before that time. We thank you in advance for helping us to ensure your children’s safety.
