As we enter the second month of our school year it seems fitting that this month’s virtue is ACCEPTANCE.
Acceptance is welcoming and including everyone as a child of God; each with differing views, talents and beliefs that bring value to our community life. Our scripture message that guides us for the month of October comes from Romans 12:5-6,
“We are one body in Christ joined in each other. So we are to use our different gifts as God has given us.”
You are truly great, and have created all things out of love and goodness. In this new month of October we ask that you help us to see our unique qualities, characteristics, and gifts. For in Your eyes we are all equal. There are no human superstars in the kingdom of heaven. You have no favourites. We pray that you continue to lead us to be welcoming, accepting people.
St. Peter & St. Paul's School is a dynamic school community located in Durham. We are a small school celebrating differences while embracing our unity in the Catholic Faith. We strive to build relationships and respect with high educational expectations, as our students move through to high school and beyond.
We have been experiencing numerous changes in the past year with staffing and students, but especially with the beautiful new addition to our building. We are in the midst of planning an official opening of the new section which will contain two new classrooms, computer lab, music room, library and an expanded gym with stage area.
Our school's staff all take responsibility for each and every child, building on their strengths. We set high standards for ongoing growth and accountability in spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical development.
We encourage a close working relationship with our parents, and parish and community partners through our social justice projects and open communication. St. Peter & St. Paul's welcomes all while following the path of Jesus.
