“Oakwood History

Oakwood has Roots that Reach! Oakwood Public School was built in 1952 as a Kindergarten to Grade 8 school with fourteen classrooms. It served the needs of the growing population in the Forrester subdivision, known to Oakville residents as Forrester’s Bush on the west bank of the Sixteen Mile Creek. Grade 7 and 8 students from other schools came to Oakwood for Shop and Home Economics in the late sixties.  

Population growth made it necessary to build on East Wing of seven classrooms in 1954. In 1969, two classrooms were combined to form our present-day library. In 1983, Oakwood PS was reconfigured to service children in grades. A new creative playground was built in 2008 thanks to the efforts of parents, community members, staff, and students. In 2018, Oakwood PS, in partnership with Halton Region became a host site to an Ontario Parent-Child Centre, servicing children 0-6 years and their families.As originally published by Oakwood PS.

“Our school is named after St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) who was a Catholic scholar and theologian. Our school motto is “Aequalitas, Veritas, Excellentia” which translates to “Equality, Truth, Excellence”. St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Secondary School, together with home, church, and community, values the uniqueness of each person and is dedicated to life-long learning, personal development, and spiritual growth. Through the cooperative efforts of our staff here at STA, we are excited to be able to offer our students a comprehensive academic program as well an outstanding co-curricular program. Included in our academic program is Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) in Health Care Science/Medical Technologies and the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. We hope this is another example of our ability to offer students a “small school” environment with the benefits of a large school curriculum. Our staff looks forward to providing our students with a unique Catholic learning experience that will prepare them for their post secondary goals.” As originally published by St Thomas Aquinas CSS
