FAST FACTS:Holy Family is the latest addition to the Clarington family of schools in the Peterborough, Victoria, Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board.
Our school opened for students starting September 2007.
Our wonderful facility includes a large gym, a music room, a science lab and 25 classrooms. We also have a sensory room to service students with special needs and four Kindergarten classrooms designed with our younger students in mind.
There is a day care facility connected with the school which is operated by Kawartha Child Care.
PROGRAM OVERVIEW:We service all students in grades JK to 8 in all subjects, with a Catholic faith-based direction. Our Science Lab allows an intensive Science Program in the older grades, and we have an instrumental music program for grade 7 and 8 students. Core French is offered from grades 4-8 with an integrated literacy program offered to students in grades JK to 3.
CATHOLIC SCHOOL COUNCIL:Our School Council consists of parents/guardians, the Principal, a teacher representative, a non-teaching staff representative and a parish representative. If you are interested in attending any of our Catholic School Council meetings, please feel free to attend on any of the dates, which are listed on the Council page of our school website. All meetings are at 6:30 p.m. in the School Professional Development Room opposite the gym, and are usually scheduled for the first Monday of the month.
