Faith and Learning
As a Catholic school, we offer approximately one-half hour of instruction per day on religious education. However, religion and spirituality is not restricted to this time but encompasses a student's entire day at Father Vachon School. We promote the Gospel values that Jesus Christ taught us throughout each of our actions each day.
Prayer is also a very important part of our faith and Father Vachon School. We begin and end each day in prayer over the intercom as well as in the daily classroom routine.
We are also blessed to have a partnership with St. Patrick Parish through school-wide liturgies or masses held at the church. Children also prepare for the sacraments of Eucharist, Reconciliation and Confirmation.
At some point during the school year, Father Vachon School offers the family life program "Fully Alive" from Grades 1 to 8. Notification as to when and how this program is being taught is communicated to parents on a yearly basis.
At our school we are Rooted in Faith, Growing in Knowledge, Reaching Out to Transform the World.
