About Our School
St. Martin of Tours was built in 1966 under the scenic Niagara Escarpment. The two acre site located on Gray Road near King Street and the Bruce Trail provides many learning opportunities for students and staff alike.
St. Martin's opened with a staff of only nine teachers, yet has housed as many as 600 students at one time.
The school has been guided by many principals over the years, beginning with Eugene Mazur. His successors include: Mr. William McMurray, Mr. Leo Murray, Mr. Tom Stoneburgh, Mrs. Joanne Naidus, Mr. Lou Giancarlo, Ms. Fran Marini, Mr. Lino Pin, Mrs. Sandra Pizzuti, Mrs. Olga Scheer and presently we are led by principal Mrs. Andreja Farkas.
We are proud of a number of recent accomplishments including our Gold Eco Certification for the last three years and being recognized in March 2012 with the Garfiled Weston Awards for Excellence in Education for Overall Academic Achievement and again in November 2012 as a School of Distinction in the area of Mathematics and Language Arts.
With a staff of over 25 teachers and a student population of about 320, we continue to carry on the St.Martin tradition of cherishing the blessings God has bestowed on our community. These blessings we continually wish to impart on those around us by reaching out to groups in need and being of service to those around us.
