Message from the Principal

Inclusion at Pius XII School

As the Principal at Pius XII School it has been a pleasure to meet so many welcoming families over the past few years. It is my goal to help the community of Pius XII to continue to build a place of learning that is inclusive for all.


Safety is the first condition for learning and for inclusion. Educators strive to structure safety for students on all levels: physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual. We provide a safe learning environment for our students when we treat everyone in our community with dignity and respect, and when we listen to their voices on issues of common concern.


Parents and care-givers play an important role in modelling inclusive behaviour; we invite you to share any thoughts or suggestions for inclusive practices.


We should consider the words of Jean Vanier:


"The health of a community can be measured by the quality of its welcome of the unexpected visitor or of someone who is poor, by the joy and simplicity of relationships between its members, by its creativity in response to the cry of the poor."


Yours in Faith,
Laurie Zahra
Principal
