St. Vincent de Paul (SVDP) School welcomes Elementary and Junior High students and their families to an inclusive learning community. Our school vision, celebrates a learning environment which is safe, open, and academically challenging; a place where everyone is treated with dignity and respect; a place where Catholic morals and values are taught, modeled and practiced.
We trust this letter finds you all invigorated and as refreshed as we are here at school. We are looking forward to a smooth school start-up and a fantastic fall. The excitement builds as we continue to create a Catholic Community of Caring where all children can and will be successful. We are eager to work with children and to celebrate their uniqueness, their beauty and their love for learning!
I am thrilled to be joining this incredible school community. My name is Greg Woitas and I will be the new school Principal at St. Vincent. I have been an educator with Calgary Catholic for 27 years teaching many areas of the curriculum from grades 1-12. I am originally from the Saskatchewan being raised in Saskatoon and Prince Albert. I am married to wonderful lady (Maurae) who is also a teacher and I have two fantastic daughters.
Through my brief encounters with parents, staff and students back in the spring, I can see that SVDP is a vibrant school community. It is evident that there are strong connections and partnerships between home, school and parish creating a school culture where student success is paramount. I look forward to connecting with our returning students, families and staff, and extending a warm welcome to new students and families.
Trinity Ayres will continue to be the Vice-Principal at SVDP for the upcoming school year. The experience and insight Trinity will offer having been at the school is immeasurable. We have a tremendous group of teachers and support staff that are dedicated and passionate about making this year a rich and rewarding learning experience.
It is with great enthusiasm and anticipation that we look forward to the year ahead. We are looking forward to re-connecting with our returning students, families and staff, and extend a warm welcome to new students and families. We will work together for the good of each child and to ensure that they experience the most optimum of learning experiences. We look forward to working in partnership with you as we continue to build our school community together. Please feel free to contact the school to discuss any matters that affect your child’s education or possible ways that you may support the school in attaining our goals.
God Bless and have a great school year!
