We are very fortunate to be a part of the global Edmund Rice Network. We are one of over 280 schools in over 20 countries educating more than 200,000 students worldwide. Being part of this community is making sure that STMC is living out the Essential Elements of an Edmund Rice Education.

Every five years each ER school in North America goes through a validation process led by a group of school leaders from other ER schools. We welcome a group from New Jersey (Bergen Catholic), Chicago and Michigan (Brother Rice) as they visit our school from February 12th to 14th. We will be ending school for our student body at 2pm on Wednesday, February 14th so that our visiting team has the opportunity to hear feedback from our guests on how we can continue to live out our Essential Elements in true Edmund Rice spirit becoming not only Servant Leaders in our communities but also Advocates for those that are marginalized.


Our 25th Annual STMC Alumni Basketball Tournament will be taking place at the StanJean Athletic Centre on Friday, February 16, through Saturday, February 18. As usual, there will be a competitive bracket and a fun/non-competitive bracket.

All are welcome to come and watch. There will be a kids zone and a snack area upstairs in the multipurpose room.
