About Our School
This establishment was originally built in 1901 as a two room school to meet the elementary school needs of the then present Catholic community. In 1913, the first addition was built. This process was repeated in 1956 and again in 1958 as the number of Catholic students increased. In 1981, the Board established St. Mary’s Junior High School for all grades 7 and 8 Catholic students in Woodstock. Grade 9 and 10 were added in 1981 and 1982 respectively and the primary and junior students were distributed to other local schools.
With the funding of Catholic secondary schools, the school was renamed St. Mary’s High School in 1985. Grades 11, 12 and 13 were added while grades 7 and 8 were phased out. In 1996, the French Immersion side of St. Rita’s was moved to what is now our school, Holy Family Catholic French Immersion School. Our French Immersion school is FDK to Grade 8 elementary students. The vast majority of our elementary students are Canadian- born with English as their first language.

When school is open and buses are delayed or cancelled, planned curriculum may be impractical due to the number of absences. Remediation, and cross-grade activities, however, are possible. We will do our utmost to provide a balance of meaningful and age appropriate activities that make use of the opportunity of smaller numbers at the school.
