St. Roch Catholic Secondary School Important Updates

  WELCOME TO ST. ROCH
Principal’s Message 2016/2017 School Year.

As we start the 2016 2017 school year, I would like to welcome all of our returning students and parents/ guardians. I would like to extend a special welcome to all our Grade 9, and all new students, parents, and guardians who are joining the St. Roch school community.

We have a fantastic supportive school community. I hope that everyone had a relaxing and enjoyable summer. With the new school year comes new goals and aspirations. Moreover, lasting memories and achievements to be made. I encourage all students to take advantage of the opportunities and support that are available in the school. We have tremendous staff that genuinely care for our student’s welfare and well- being.

I challenge all students and families to grow spiritually. Get involved in the Spiritual Life here in our school. We work to foster total personal and spiritual growth at St. Roch. We empower one another to become disciples of Jesus Christ and to live out the Gospel teachings everyday.

Lastly, I would like to encourage parents and guardians to forge partnerships with the school in the best interest of your son or daughter. The partnership between family, school, and parish is essential in the total development of your child. We look forward to working with you in the upcoming year.

God Bless

Manny Farrugia

SAFETY FIRST WHEN DROPPING STUDENTS OFF AT SCHOOLThe safety of all children and staff must be considered as paramount at all times when dropping students off at school.

The number of serious incidents related to traffic circulation at the front of the school and in the Kiss and Ride area during morning arrival and afternoon dismissal has risen. These incidents include vehicles entering the site in the wrong direction, parking and pulling out of no parking zones, parking in bus lanes, to name a few.

It is imperative that all parents and guardians who drive their children to school adhere to the traffic circulation plan and comply with the traffic and parking signage on the site. It is equally imperative that all drivers follow the direction of staff managing the traffic circulation on the school site.

Thank you for your consideration and co-operation with this important matter.
