Participation and acknowledgment of the interests and needs of each segment of our school community is at the core of the decision making process of the school administration. The pastor, Father Fergal McGuiness and Principal, Mrs. Olivia Brazil, as school administrators, actively seek and encourage participation and input from all segments of the school community. Consensus building at St. Apollinaris Catholic School is a strong component of building a faith filled community.
