Principal’s Message

Dear Parents, Students, Alumni, and guests of this site,

I would like to invite you to St. Jude School’s official website. We encourage you to explore the links, the galleries, and the many aspects of our school as it showcases who we are as educators and what our community is all about.

St. Jude School was established in 1955 as a member of the Catholic Independent Schools Vancouver Archdiocese. We are a Christ-centered school that seeks to develop the whole child for the purpose of building the Kingdom of God. In order to work towards achieving our purpose, we develop and nurture the spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, and social aspects of each child. As staff, we work in collaboration with each other, with parents, and students to ensure that each child is supported in their individual growth individually, academically, and spiritually. The education of the whole child requires that parents and teachers partner their efforts and work towards the same common goal of guiding children in becoming the person God intends them to be.

At St. Jude School, we are committed to providing your child with a strong academic foundation that will empower them to become positive leaders for the community. We are committed to providing your child with an array of extra curricular opportunities from sports teams to drama club to orchestra so that they can discover their talents that extend beyond the classroom walls. We are committed to providing a safe and caring environment for your child so that they can develop friendships and take risks in their learning. We are committed to providing your child with a firm understanding of their faith and God’s plan for them so that our children are equipped to make sound moral decisions.

I am grateful for being able to work alongside dedicated teachers, support staff, and parents who are deeply committed to our school community and our Catholic faith.



Yours in Christ,


Chris van der Pauw
