Blessed Sacrament Catholic School

Blessed Sacrament Catholic School

Blessed Sacrament Catholic School is a primary school instructing students from grades Junior Kindergarten (JK) to 8 and is part of the Waterloo Catholic District School Board. It was established in 1988 and is affiliated with its nearby parish Blessed Sacrament Church. It is located on The Country Way in Kitchener, Ontario, in the Regional Municipality of Waterloo. The school teaches roughly 350 students per year, and its sports teams are known as "The Bears". The majority of its graduates go on to secondary school at St. Mary's High School, though before the local school boundaries were changed in 2002, most went to Resurrection Catholic Secondary School.


Blessed Sacrament has its own baseball diamond, soccer field, and its own double gym, which can be separated by a mechanical curtain and also houses the stage. The school also has a playground and a fenced-in area for the kindergarten students to play. It shares a border with L'École Élémentaire Catholique Cardinal-Léger, a Catholic French immersion school.


As of July 7, 2006, the principal of the school is John Sullivan. Due to the small population of the school, it has typically not had a vice-principal. The school currently employs 31 people, including custodial and educational assistants. []


The school holds the standard elementary school policies mandated by the Ministry of Education of Ontario, and the Safe Schools Act. Students are not permitted to leave the school's boundaries during school hours, with the exception to go home for lunch.

The school has several students with nut allergies so the school has a "nut-free" policy. No nut products are allowed on school property. The school encourages parent volunteers but screens carefully all adults who wish to work in the school. To ensure the safety of all students and staff, all visitors, guests and parents must enter at the front door of the school after being allowed entry by the secretary.


The Catholic faith is an important part of the school tradition. The school openly celebrates many Catholic events, such as the praying of the Rosary, and Adoration of the Eucharist. Lenten and Advent activities are important opportunities for the children to witness their faith.
