St Joseph's Primary School, Kilaben Bay is a K-6 co-educational school in the Toronto district and surrounding suburbs.
In 2010 our school community celebrated our Silver Jubilee at our present location. In 1984 the school moved to its present site in Kilaben Bay ensuring that children and teachers at St Joseph's enjoy the advantages of modern classrooms in an environment conducive to learning.
The culture of St Joseph's Primary School is one of shared values and a commitment to quality Catholic education. School life is centred on the school's Vision Statement and the school motto of "Love One Another", which is strongly reinforced in daily life at St Joseph's. Children educated at our school will grow in understanding and appreciating the core values of love, respect, co-operation and reconciliation.
Our school enjoys a proud reputation of high quality learning and teaching. Academically the school continues to reflect excellent results and the children continue to give their personal best. The school is embracing learning technologies as tools of the digital age and encourage students to take responsibility for their own learning in a supportive and nurturing partnership with parents.
We strive to resource our classrooms as innovative and supportive learning environments that reflect contemporary and differentiated teaching and learning. As we believe each child is different, we work towards nurturing and enhancing the unique gifts and talents of each child.
The school reflects a strong commitment to social justice, with our school recently acknowledged and commended by Catholic Mission as the highest fundraising school nationally. The children of St Joseph's Primary School enjoy a range of sporting, cultural and social opportunities including the school choir, band, debating, public speaking, Tournament of Minds and enrichment days.
