Leadership Recogintion

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


Our students also show leadership in sports, reading morning announcements, and initiating projects based on world-wide events. Older students are active in supporting our younger students as helpers and bus monitors. Students have also participated in the transition committee as we are preparing for the upcoming change in school organization. Students at all levels participate in ‘Lunch with the Principal’ meetings during which they have the chance to build relationships with other students and to have a say in how the school can best support all students. In addition to informal recognition on a regular basis, we also acknowledge their contributions in our classrooms, school announcements, newsletters, our Principal's report to school council, and end-of-year awards ceremonies.


Our staff members have a wealth of professional qualifications including Bachelors and Masters degrees in Arts, Fine Arts, Physical Education and Sciences, as well as additional qualifications in Special Education, English as a Second Language, Music, Visual Arts, Guidance, and Computers in Education. They 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. We also recognize staff leadership via personal interactions with one another, letters of thanks, school announcements, school newsletters, assemblies, performance appraisals, and our Principal's report to school council.


Our dedicated school council meets monthly and supports our classroom programs through a variety of fundraisers. As invaluable partners, we thank our parents, guardians and volunteers on an on-going basis, and look for opportunities to acknowledge them, such as school announcements, our Principal's report to school council, school newsletters, and our annual volunteer appreciation event.


We recognize our community partners through our school announcements, school newsletters, school web site, Principal's report to school council, and thank you cards. We also invite them to events, awards ceremonies, and the grade 8 leaving ceremony.
