Principal’s Welcome to the Pauline Johnson Website

PJ South Phone #:  905-388-1761 … PJ North Phone #:  905-385-5344

Pauline Johnson is a school of approximately 430 students located on Hamilton’s Central Mountain.  There is considerable diversity in our school community.  In conjunction with the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board we are focusing on: Student Achievement, Student Engagement and Equity.

We are fortunate to have a dedicated and professional staff of Teachers, Early Childhood Educators, Educational Assistants, Caretakers and Office Support Staff.  Each person contributes to the collective betterment of our school.

Pauline Johnson also has an active and dedicated School Council chaired by Laura O’Neill and Laurie Walowina.  The core group of parents are very helpful in arranging Pizza Days and fundraising at the school.  We invite all to attend our meetings and take part in enriching life at the school.

I am excited to be the Principal of Pauline Johnson school.  I look forward to working with everyone in our school community.  Together we can make a difference at preparing our students to be contributing citizens of our country.

Colin Hazell – Principal

    The third annual Just One Wish Kindness Awards were held on July 1, 2017 in Gage Park during the It's Your Festival celebrations for Canada's 150th birthday. Organizers honoured 151 children (150 for Canada's birthday and one for good luck), age 4 to 18, from across HWDSB for their kindness. These children exemplify what is means to be Canadian and what Canada is all about. Congratulations to all!
