Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools

In our schools

Pre-kindergarten programs

Pre-kindergartens are set up in areas where there are high numbers of three- and four-year-olds who aren't in other early learning programs. We review social, economic, and health statistics to determine the neighbourhoods with the greatest needs.

More information about pre-kindergarten is available in this Frequently Asked Questions About Prekindergarten section on the Ministry of Education website.

The schools listed in the PDF document below offer pre-kindergarten programs. If you would like to enrol your child in pre-kindergarten, please contact the school's main office.

Safe, Caring Communities

Emergency Communication

We work closely with the Saskatoon Police Service and Saskatoon Fire and Protective Services to develop school safety plans. Learn more about school safey in this PDF flyer for parents.

 

Anti-Bullying

We work with parents to teach children how to build relationships based on a spirit of respect and concern for all. Our actions and relationships with each other reflect our Catholic faith.

We work diligently to ensure our schools are places where expectations for student behaviour are clearly communicated, consistently enforced and fairly applied. Each school has a Code of Conduct stating its values and vision.

In case of a transportation emergency

The Transportation Communication Protocol details responsibilities and tasks to be carried out by school and board office staff when a transportation emergency, such as a motor vehicle accident or medical problem, occurs. The protocol also sets out what action should be taken by the company busing the students. Currently, First Bus Canada provides busing services for Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools.
