Leadership Recognition

“Leadership in the OCDSB is the demonstration of personal initiative to achieve a positive outcome.”

Students

As elected representatives of the school population, our Student Council provides input for our school-wide events and fundraising for both the school and the community. Many of our students are Bus Monitors and Lunch Monitors and support our younger students. Our Technology Crew supports technology during school wide activities.  Our students are always responding to the needs presented to us in the community. Our students have demonstrated leadership athletics. Our Environmental Club plays an important role in our school.  In addition to informal recognition on a regular basis, we also acknowledge their contributions in our classrooms, school announcements, Wall of Fame display case, newsletters, our Principal’s report to School Council, recognition assemblies, and at the end-of-the-year ceremonies.

Staff

Our staff members have professional qualifications in many different areas as well a wealth of experience. Many staff members have continued their education by taking Additional Basic Qualification courses Staff members have actively participated in numerous Board-wide professional development activities in literacy and numeracy and we recognize their initiative by providing and supporting opportunities for further professional growth. Our staff members are involved in the Mentoring Program for new teachers and for staff new to our school. We recognize staff leadership via personal interactions, letters of thanks, school announcements, newsletters, assemblies, performance appraisals and our Principal’s report to School Council.

Parents/Guardians/Volunteers

Our volunteers contribute many hours of support for the benefit of students in our school. This includes volunteering in the classrooms, on field trips, bake sales, serving the pizza lunches, assisting with school teams, as well as other activities. Our dedicated School Council meets monthly and contributed funds to assist our library, support student-led initiatives and students in need. As priceless partners, we thank our parents, guardians and volunteers on an on-going basis and look for opportunities to acknowledge them in school announcements, newsletters, our Principal’s report to School Council, and with our volunteer appreciation event held at the end of each year.

Community

We have a variety of community partners including the local high schools (through the Coop program), the local library, Algonquin College and the University of Ottawa. We recognize our community partners through announcements, newsletters, assemblies, our Principal’s report to School Council, and our year end ceremonies.
