Land Acknowledgement

Our school respectfully acknowledges that we are located on the ancestral, traditional and unceded Indigenous territory of the Algonquin and Anishinaabe Peoples,
on whose territory we pray, learn, play and work.

The OCSB acknowledges the suffering experienced by Indigenous peoples in Canada's Residential Schools and is committed to Truth and Reconciliation. Read the OCSB Response to the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action to learn more.

The OCSB operates a before and after-school Extended Day Program (EDP) in our school children 4-12 years. You can register your child in our morning, afternoon, or both programs for 2-5 consecutive days a week. The program may also be available on PD days and March Break if there is enough interest. Visit the Child Care page on the OCSB website for more information.

Spiritual Theme

The OCSB's spiritual theme for 2024-2027 is:  We are called to open doors, build bridges, and nourish new beginnings. It is rooted in Revelation 3:20, “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock…” 

In each of the next three school years, our school will focus on a different aspect of the Spiritual Theme: Opening doors, Building bridges and Nourishing new beginnings.
