We, the staff of St. Theresa School serve as models while we encourage and challenge each student to be a witness to his/her faith and join with us on our journey to Christ. While recognizing the unique gifts and talents of each student, we will strive to instill mutual respect for each other and develop the knowledge, skills and values of each child in order that he/she may realize he/her full potential as a contributing member of society.
–School Mission Statement
St. Theresa School is an open area school located within the parish boundaries of the St. Patrick Catholic Church in the community of Merritton. The Church plays an important role in the faith development of our students. Liturgies and prayer services planned by students and teachers in close co-operation with Rev. Father Christopher Gillen continue to be a focus for our school spiritual life.
The St. Theresa Community is very family oriented, with the school situated next to the hub of neighbourhood events. The Community Center and the Merritton Arena are located within walking distance. A dedicated involved School Council adds to our vibrant atmosphere.
St. Theresa Catholic Elementary School is a part of the Denis Morris Catholic High School Family of Schools.
