Our School

Cathy Wever Elementary School opened in September 2006. Our school is named after the late Hamilton Police Officer Cathy Wever. Cathy Wever worked tirelessly with community members to offer youth of this neighbourhood free after-school programs. She was the driving force behind the community partnerships and strong after-school programs enjoyed by hundreds of students today. After a brief battle with cancer Cathy Wever passed away in January 2001. The community wished to recognize her efforts by naming the new school after her. Cathy Wever Elementary School students are committed to representing our name sake well.
