School Council Members

The Catholic School Council is a vehicle for communication and consultation between the school, the parish, the community at large, the student body and the parent community. In short, the School Council exists to enhance the education of each and every child at the school. A large part of the agenda is to provide fundraising opportunities for the school. Through fundraising, they may provide support for initiatives that both complement and supplement the curriculum.

2018-19 Elected Members:

Chairs: J. Lord 
Treasurer: C. Dark
Secretary: J. Hordy

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.
