Welcome/Benvenuti to St. Maria Goretti School. This is a community of children, teachers, support staff and parents dedicated to the promotion of a positive school environment. We believe that by combining our talents, we make this school the best place that it can be! As a catholic school, we say that we are “Embraced by God, Inspired by Learning”.
St. Maria Goretti School (SMG) serves the communities of Hawkwood, Rocky Ridge and Royal Oak in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Parents from other North West communities also choose to transport their children to SMG to take advantage of our fine Italian Language and Culture (ILC) program. Our building was built in the community of Hawkwood in 1994 and is located with sweeping views of the Rocky Mountains. We are blessed with a beautiful school that boasts plenty space and natural light.
The program at St. Maria Goretti School is unique in that we offer Italian Language and Culture classes starting in Kindergarten. We also offer the choice of French as a Second Language instruction beginning in Grade 4. In addition, our Art and Music programs are taught by specialists and are an excellent addition to our cultural focus.
Open communication is extremely important to us. We believe that parents, as the first and most critical teachers of their children have much to share. This information, combined with our expertise as professional educators will create a positive program for each child. We look forward to working with you.
Mr. M. Macdonald, Principal
