Principal's Message

Bonjour, and welcome to Ecole immaculée-conception School’s website!

EICS has a reputation of excellence in Catholic education, and we will continue to strive to become the best.  We have embarked upon a new school year with great enthusiasm and anticipation of new opportunities that will enhance our instructional program and school community as a whole.

I am excited to be joining the EICS community this year to serve with you as principal. 

At EICS, we are committed and dedicated to providing our students with a well-rounded educational experience. 

Our students have the opportunity to learn French as a second language, while covering the full Ontario elementary Curriculum. Please know that there is no expectation that the student will know any French prior to entering the French immersion program. There is also no expectation that the child’s family will know French. You can support your child’s learning even if you don’t know French.

Catholic virtues are an integral part of our Character education at EICS. The 10 Bruce-Grey Catholic District School Board virtues identified through an extensive community consultation process are: Reverence / Respect, Acceptance, Responsibility, Hope, Patience, Empathy, Compassion, Forgiveness, Integrity, and Honesty. Each of these virtues reflects our Board’s mission, vision and values and helps to create and sustain inclusive, Catholic learning and working environments.

Our goal is to help our students meet the Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectations. The Ontario Catholic School graduate will be:

• A Discerning Believer                                                     
• An Effective Contributor
• A Reflective, Creative and Holistic Thinker                       
• A Collaborative Contributor
• A Self-Directed, Responsible, Lifelong Learner                 
• A Caring Family Member
• A Responsible Citizen 

We are blessed by the spiritual leadership of Father Michael Anderson, pastor of Immaculate Conception Church, who celebrates our school Masses and regularly visits our classrooms. 

Please visit our beautiful school and see that we are a school committed to children’s success, safety and well-being. You will find that this is a vibrant and engaging community of teachers and learners.  We believe that parents’ involvement is an essential component to the academic success of children.  We have a vibrant and dynamic school council which works hard to provide support to our school programs.

We encourage you to visit our website often, meet your child’s teacher and to get engaged in all that EICS has to offer. Your participation in our school is greatly appreciated!

We look forward to learning, shining, inspiring and praying with you as we build a bright future for our precious students.

Merci! 

Papy Mukenge, Principal
