Principal's Message

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome everyone to the Castle for the upcoming school year.  Our team of educators is eager to greet you on the first day and support you on your learning journey throughout the school year.  COVID protocols are continuing to ensure that every child is in a safe learning environment.

Specific COVID protocols in place at the Castle are based on the best advice from Ottawa Public Health and align or exceed provincial standards. 

I think of myself as being a responsive and available principal, so if you would like to reach me, please email me directly or call the office. Please note we have a new office administrator, Sarah J. Stewart who can support you with most of your questions.

Castlefrank has over 325 students in kindergarten to grade 3 in both English and French Immersion programs.  We strive to create a positive and respectful learning environment within the Castle walls by being responsive to the social-emotional development of the whole child alongside their academic learning journey. We pride ourselves on having a learning environment that respects diversity and that is inclusive to all.

A good learning experience is built on a cooperative effort between parent, child and the educators. Parental involvement at home and volunteering within the school help to make the learning experience richer, while adding to the fabric of what makes Castlefrank such a strong school.  I would encourage families to engage with class virtual learning environment that will be both the primary home-school connection and an effective way to appreciate what your child is learning at school.  Please discuss the learning with your children and embrace opportunities to be involved (subject to COVID limitations).

As a learning leader at Castlefrank, my expectations for conduct and standards for academic growth are high.  The time your child spends at Castlefrank is foundational to their success in life. 
We are thankful that we are a part of your children’s important learning journey.
