Council News & Information

An advisory group to the school, the Our Lady of Peace Catholic School Council has as its mandate to provide advice and/or assistance on school issues and community endeavours. Its members reflect the partnership dynamic of home, parish and school. The Council's representation includes parents, the principal, a parish representative, a community representative, as well as teacher and non-teacher representatives.

The Council at Our Lady of Peace goes well beyond its mandate and contributes enormously in creating a healthy and rich learning environment for students and teachers alike. Through numerous fundraising activities and special projects, we have benefited in both countless educational and human resources. We extend our deepest respect and appreciation to our members and parent volunteers for their fine efforts. Everyone is welcome to attend the meetings, which will be held the second Tuesday of from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm in the school's Learning Commons. 

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.

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.
