Principal's Message

Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,

As principal of Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our school. Educating students since 1975, Our Lady of Sorrows School is a place rich in culture, tradition, dedicated to faith and family. Our environment is both nurturing and supportive, and continues to grow through the contributions of all of our members. With the help of staff, parents and community members, OLS students grow as learners in God’s love.

Our Lady of Sorrows School is a Catholic school that begins with Junior Kindergarten and continues through eighth grade. Our students embark on an academic journey with the support of a family of teachers and students during their formative years.

Our school prides itself on being a community that invites all students to excel and to meet their academic, physical and spiritual potential.  At Our Lady of Sorrows School, we value your trust and the privilege of teaching your children. We cherish the opportunity to help cultivate each student’s God-given gifts and talents in all areas; including academic, social-emotional, spiritual, artistic and physical.  We proudly work closely with students, parents, our Catholic School Advisory Council, staff, Our Lady of Sorrows Parish, Holy Spirit Parish and the greater community to help our students meet their fullest potential. We are proud to be called a tri-cultural school offering programs in English, French as a Second Language and Native as a Second Language. Through our Catholic faith, we strive to further develop literacy and numeracy skills to help each student as they pursue their own pathway. Please remember that communication between home and school is very important to us.  Do not hesitate to call or make an appointment with your child's teacher to discuss any concerns or questions. 

At the heart of all we do is faith formation. Attending monthly Mass, participating in Eucharistic celebrations, Sacrament preparation, and daily prayer, our students learn to cherish and live their faith today and always.

Thank you for considering Our Lady of Sorrows School for your family where we truly strive to be the school, where Education is Rooted in Faith and Alive in Spirit.

We invite you to visit our school and experience our community.

Yours in Christ,

Stacey Malette
