We opened in September 2005 with a population of 37 students in grades K - 7. We had 3 classrooms with 4.24 teachers. We have seen tremendous growth over the years. There is a wonderful, happy spirit between staff, students, and parents. St. John Paul II is a place where staff and students learn, serve, lead, and succeed.
Parishioners, volunteers, the Knights of Columbus (Alberni and Parksville/Qualicum), the CWL (Alberni and Parksville/Qualicum), our sister schools, the Diocese of Victoria, the Parents' Auxiliary, and the Local School Council, all contribute to the success of St. John Paul II. Many of these people continue to give and to share on a regular basis to assure the continuance of Catholic education in Port Alberni. Their efforts and generosity are most appreciated.
Together we are making a difference for children in the Port Alberni Valley.
