SJSH Cares

SJSH Cares offers you an anonymous way in which to share concerns which impact on a safe learning environment for either yourself or someone else within the school.

Principal's Message
Consistent with our motto Spiritu Virtute Scientia, our goal is to create a 21st century learning environment that will support the intellectual and spiritual growth of each of our students, developing leaders who are rooted in Gospel Values and committed to meeting the challenges of our society.  Our continuous focus on success for all students is supported by a collaborative partnership between all staff, our students, parents and community that we serve.  Our strong and diverse athletics programs provide opportunities for students outside of the classroom and are rooted in our philosophy of “win with humility, lose with pride” (Fr. Cundari).  We provide many different opportunities for students to become involved in our BEARS community; from athletics, student council, community outreach programs, clubs and much more.  Student voice is essential and welcomed and I strongly encourage all students to become involved and enjoy all that St. Joseph-Scollard Hall has to offer.

Derek Belanger,
