It is our honour to serve each and everyone of you!

I hope you all enjoyed a restful and fun-filled summer! The teachers, staff, and I can't wait to hear of all your summer adventures. We have all been busy over the last several weeks preparing the school and classrooms for your return.


Welcome back


to a new school year,

The teachers, staff, and I were on retreat this week, and we attended Faith Development Day with all the other Catholic schools in the CISVA to reconnect and network with other teachers in our system and to deepen and nourish our faith and to prepare spiritually for this school year.

Parents, families, and even neighbours came out to what I am told was one of the biggest turnouts for an outdoor work party. With such an amazing and industrious crew of volunteers, we were able to add the finishing touches to the campus in preparation for the first day of school. Thank you to all who so generously gave of their time! It was a pleasure to meet you and work with you!

I cannot wait to finally officially meet all of you as the new principal, starting with your children on the first day of school. Thank you to all the families whom I have already had the pleasure of meeting for extending such a warm welcome to me and for helping me with my transition. You have already made me feel at home. I am excited to get to know all of you and to serve you. I look forward to the upcoming academic year, knowing it will be filled with many successes and challenges, by students, parents, and teachers alike. Most importantly, we take on the upcoming year in communion as we continue to mould the minds and spirits of our children.

This year’s theme for all Catholic Independent Schools of Vancouver Archdiocese is “Care For Our Common Home" This year, let us celebrate and rejoice in what we are called to do as disciples of our faith by seeing Jesus in the world around us and the people around us, and by sharing Him with everyone around us!

Let us all commit to our call to the care of our “common home” — in our school, in our homes, and in our lives.

Welcome back, St. Augustine’s! Let’s have a wonderful year together!

God Bless,

Mr. Yaptinchay

The grade seven students hosted our first mass of the new school year and, as part of it, they were called to the front and blessed by Father Andrew with the following prayer:

Grade 7 Leadership Blessing

Leadershipblessing3 Leadershipblessing2 Leadershipblessing1

Loving God, you guide, care and provide for us and light our way.

Bless our grade 7 students as they take on the role as leaders of our school.

Help them to be respectful, patient, compassionate and wise in their work with others and good role models for the younger students.  

Stir in them an unselfish spirit for service.

Bless our community as we encourage and support them in their leadership role.

We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.
