Gloria Grieve, Principal

Welcome to Holy Family Catholic School where we provide the children of this school community a safe and clean learning environment. Our cultural diversity allows us to offer a range of opportunities and challenges that will give our children experiences that will develop their skills. It gives with the greatest pleasure that we will work with you as parents, your children and the greater Wallaceburg community. Striving to provide our children with the best educational experience is our first and foremost priority.

Holy Family Catholic School welcomes you to our learning and loving community! Our staff is a collaborative team of skilled educators, who focus on student success in all areas. We recognize that children thrive in an environment that is welcoming, safe, and loving and we strive to meet the diverse needs of all learners. Students at Holy Family are encouraged to develop their God-given gifts in ways that inspire confidence and instill an enthusiasm for learning. Holy Family is in close proximity to the church which strengthens our community of faith. Our Parish team, including Father Chris Gillespie, Father Raju Allumpurath, Deacon Cyril Cogghe, Dorothy deBakker and Virginia Eade, supports the faith and academic needs of all of our students. Holy Family is the home of the Cardinals who soar to success and fly above the rest!

Your Child’s Immunization during a Disease Outbreak

For school attendance, parents are required by law to provide proof of their child’s immunization to Public Health.  To find out what vaccines are required and if your child’s immunization records are up-to-date, please call the Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit.  You can also book an immunization appointment.

If you’ve chosen not to immunize your child, you must have a notarized statement of medical exemption or a statement of conscious/religious belief on file with Public Health.  Please contact us to arrange for your child’s exemption to be on file if you have not already done so. 

If there is an outbreak of disease in your child’s school and his/her immunization record is not up-to-date with Public Health, or you have an exemption on file, your child will not be allowed to attend school for the entire duration of the outbreak.

As you may be aware, Measles cases have recently been identified in Ontario, Quebec, and Manitoba.  The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care was advised on February 16, 2015 of a confirmed case of measles in a person who attended the “Acquire the Fire” event, a mass gathering of youth that was held in Toronto, at Queensway Cathedral on February 6 and 7, 2015.  If your child attended this event, please contact Chatham-Kent Public Health.

Privacy Advisory

Our families and staff enjoy opportunities to share some of their activities with parents and the school community through teams, clubs and special events. Many of these are ‘memory making’ for families and as such, photographs and videos are often taken.

We ask that families exercise their discretion when taking photographs or videos at school events and consider the privacy of other students who may also be present in those pictures. We would appreciate if families not upload images of students other than their own to the Internet (e.g. YouTube or Facebook). Your cooperation with this request is appreciated.
