2017-2018WELCOME TO RONCALLI ELEMENTARY
Elementary, we inspire each other to learn every day in a constructive, nurturing and
respectful environment. We strive to work cooperatively, encourage responsibility and
recognize diversity. We are a proud community! Roncalli Elementary
School serves 460 students from Kindergarten to Grade 6. The
school's current population is organized in 21 classroom groupings.
Roncalli Elementary School is a neighbourhood school serving the
Airport Heights community. The boundary for the school covers the
western side of Torbay Road from Airport Road to Harbour View Avenue
including the Hussey Drive area, Major's Path and streets adjacent
to it and Airport Heights Drive and streets that branch from it. The
housing development in our surrounding neighbourhood is proceeding
and thus there is greater opportunity for increased student
enrolment at Roncalli. Approximately
15% of the students travel to and from school by the school bus service.
