Principal Gino Pizzoferrato St. Ann Hamilton has been designated as an Equal Opportunities School by the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board (HWCDSB). Demographic studies were conducted to determine that certain schools have a significantly larger percentage of socio-economically disadvantaged students than others. (Designated Schools Committee 1980, Elementary Students at Risk Committee, 2001). Supporting the needs of socio-economic disadvantaged schools and students is a high priority for the HWCDSB. Additional staff and supplementary resources are provided to schools with this designation. The HWCDSB allocates extra funding for Equal Opportunity Schools. As well, there are many community partners that provide funding and services for different programs.

Favourite books On behalf of the staff students and parebts/caregivers of St. Ann Catholic Elementary school I would like to extend my thanks for the incredible outpouring of generosity to the school via the Indigo Adopt a School campaign. Preliminary results at the conclusion of the adoption window shows that approximately $940.00 through online donations have been secured. These funds will be used to purchase books for the library at a significantly discounted rate over the next two months. Thank you to everyone who contributed in any way to this initiative.
G. Pizzoferrato, Principal
