About Our School
St. Martin is a large Catholic elementary school located in Old South London with a faith-centred focus. Although many of our students attend different parishes we have very close ties to St. Martin Parish next door. Our school community has certain richness as we have students from varied cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. Our staff is recognized as a very capable, caring, and cohesive group who give freely of their time to offer balanced extracurricular activities. Learning Services, our Library and use of technology and a very supportive School Council and parent community are strengths for our school.
St. Martin has been the site of a Catholic School for over 100 years. Our building has three floors and space for 18 classrooms and smaller classrooms. There is a full size gymnasium, stage and a library & computer room.
Living Our Faith
St. Martin students, parents and staff support a number of charities and participate in many community activities. These include but are not limited to:
-St. Vincent DePaul Society
-Terry Fox Foundation
-London Food Bank
-Heart & Stroke Foundation
Students are transported on four buses, walk or are driven to school. Information regarding bus cancellations or delays is available on local radio stations and our Board’s web site or at www.mybigyellowschoolbus.ca.
St. Martin participates in a Safe Arrival Program. Students in grade six participate in the Values, Influence and Peers (VIP) program. There is a before and after school program for younger students whose parents work (provided by the London School Age Program). The school, Catholic School Council and Student Parliament have instituted initiatives to reduce bullying and promote healthy active living.
