Leadership Recognition

Leadership Recognition

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

Students

As representatives of our student population, our students show leadership in many school-wide events such as Earthcare and monthly character days. Some of our older students work with younger students to provide additional social support for those who need it. Our Coro Piccolo Choir has shown leadership in our school by their performances at school events including our family pot luck dinner.

Caretaking in our community has been an ongoing focus for our school. Our students have raised money for building wells in other countries, and work hard every year to raise money for the Heart and Stroke Foundation through our Jump Rope for Heart initiative. In sports, our students represented our school in board-wide tournaments.

Staff

Our staff members have a wealth of professional qualifications including Bachelors and Masters degrees as well as additional qualifications in Special Education, English as a Second Language, Music, Art, and Drama and Computers. They continue to participate in school and Board-wide professional development activities in literacy and numeracy, and we recognize their initiative by providing and supporting opportunities for further professional growth. As a strong, professional learning community ,staff members provide professional growth experiences for each other in their sharing of ideas and materials, as well as through developing and providing common learning goals for students throughout the whole school. Many of our staff are currently involved on a collaborative inquiry about our First Nations, Metis, and Inuit students, which is sponsored by the Ministry of Education

Parents/Guardians/Volunteers

Last year, our volunteers from OCRI and members of the wider community supported us on a weekly basis by reading with our students and by working inpidually with students experiencing difficulty in math. Our dedicated school council meets monthly and fundraises to support school initiatives. Our Parent Council hosts our annual Holiday Pot Luck dinner in December, our fall and spring barbeques, and many other school initiatives. We love our parents and volunteers!

Community

Last year, our volunteers from ONFE and members of the wider community supported us on a daily and weekly basis by working with our students in a variety of ways including on special projects and interests, and curricular expectations. Our partnership with CGI has provided our students with wonderful backpacks, hot breakfasts and lunch, a school-wide assembly with a magician, and, as we look towards spring, we look forward to the school-wide barbecue they will be hosting for our students. Our dedicated school council meets monthly and fundraises to support school initiatives. Our Parent Council hosts our annual Holiday Pot Luck dinner in December.
