Our School

Exterior shot of school

At All Saints Catholic Secondary School, we are called to celebrate and nurture the God-given talents of each student as we serve with excellence in the light of Christ. We recognize our call to love and serve from our Master teacher Jesus Christ, and we are committed to creating a Catholic learning community under the protection of Mother Mary.

The Catholic Graduate Expectations are our foundation as we strive for academic excellence and the acknowledgement of those who achieve it. We recognize God as the source of all life and actively work to focus on social issues within our local and global communities.

We celebrate the diversity within our community with a collaborative approach to learning, in cooperation with parents, the Catholic faith community, and other organizations that recognize the value of our mission. Within the context of Catholic teaching and Sacramental living, our school community strives to demonstrate respect and reverence for all life, thus nurturing a safe, Christian environment for the entire school community.

Our Board's 2017 - 2018 School Year Calendar is now available. Please subscribe to our school calendar webpage to receive the latest updates and emails on upcoming events and activities happening at school.

All Saints

All Saints refers to and celebrates all those who have been recognized as having an exceptional degree of holiness or likeness to God. We consider their virtues as copies taken from God, the great Original. His divine life is their great example and when we honour the saints we honour and praise God who is the Author of all their good. The festivals of All Saints were established to honour God and our Blessed Redeemer Jesus Christ.

School community prayer

Loving Father,
We cherish your love, your guidance, and all you have given us in our lives.
Give us the courage to nurture our faith, allowing it to grow.
Help us to reach our full potential in every aspect of our lives.
Inspire us to be a friend to everyone,
and to be the light in others' darkness.
Give us the strength to respect one another as well as ourselves.
Through your love may we unite as a community,
So that we may follow in your son's footsteps towards an eternal life in heaven.
Amen

Philosophy

As Catholic educators, we live according to our Father's code and to lead our students, by example, to live the basic truths of the gospel message. This is an awesome, yet inspiring challenge which we share with the parents of our young men and women.

Children learn what they live. Each day we have the opportunity to teach our students:

  • to love by the way we love;
  • to be generous by our generosity;
  • to be passionate by our compassion; and
  • to be forgiving by the way we forgive.

However, a person cannot give what he or she does not have. Unless we are living the Gospel message, we cannot lead our students to do so.

There are many hallmarks of a Catholic educator, including:

  • Prayer - The challenges of our vocation, and indeed life in general, are great. To meet them we need to follow Christ's advice that we "ask the father in My name". Each Catholic educator has a duty to expose students to his or her particular style of prayer in order to assist students to recognize the value of prayer in daily life.
  • Eucharist - Parish, school, and staff liturgies provide opportunities to celebrate our faith. Our example can testify to the Eucharist as a joyful source of strength and community building.
  • Social Justice - This is the heart of the Christian message, that we "love one another as I have loved you". As our brother's and sister's keepers, we must be concerned about the aged, the poor, the oppressed, and any other marginalized group - both at home and abroad.

Our Mission

The community of All Saints Catholic Secondary School embraces the legacy of Jesus. We inspire high standards in our life-long journey of the whole, unique person within our diverse lives.

  • We believe each student can reach his or her full potential by engaging in the learning process.
  • We believe, as staff, our responsibility is to be models of discipleship and nurturers of the talents of our students.
  • We believe, as teachers, it is our duty to refine our skills to meet the diverse needs of all learners.
  • We believe each person can be confident, competent, and compassionate every day.
  • We believe our school can be alive with tradition, community, and possibility.
