A strong and active school council is key in contributing to the success of our school and our children.

All parents are welcome to attend the monthly Council meetings, and are encouraged to participate in and support all council activities. 

Council meets once a month in order to:
* organize family and community events to enhance our children's elementary school experience
* organize fundraising events to raise money for the educational benefit of our children
* provide advice on behalf of all parents to the principal

OCSB Parent Involvement Committee (PIC)


The Ottawa Catholic School Board Parent Involvement Committee (PIC) is a provincially mandated committee made up of parents, a trustee, a principal and the Director of Education. The purpose of PIC is to support, encourage and enhance parent engagement at the school board level in order to improve student achievement and well-being. The parent members of the OCSB PIC are appointed by CSPA. 

Learn more about OCSB's PIC on the PIC page of the Board website.



The Catholic School Parents’ Association (CSPA)
 is a volunteer group representing the parents in our school board. We are a resource for school councils and the parent community for information on local and provincial education issues. Through our website, Twitter, and email newsletters we provide updates on education in Ottawa & Ontario; plus we share great tips, resources and information to help parents support their children in school. All parents are welcome and encouraged to join our e-mail list, follow us on Twitter or attend CSPA monthly meetings.
