Discover our School
Our school respectfully acknowledges that we are located on the ancestral, traditional and unceded Indigenous territory of the Algonquin 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's spiritual theme for 2021-2024 is: Gratitude rooted in Joy, fills us with Hope
In each of the next three school years, our school will focus on a different aspect of the Spiritual Theme: Gratitude, Joy and Hope.
“My brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of any kind, consider it nothing but joy, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance.”
– James 1: 2-3 (NRSV)
Faith in Our School
Along with each child’s family, and Assumption Parish, we support each of our student's spiritual development by providing students with the opportunity to:
learn about the Catholic faith through the Born in the Spirit Religion Program;
learn about family life through the Fully Alive Program;
participate in masses and liturgies;
participate in works that help to bring about local and global social justice; and
participate in activities that are rooted in gospel values and help to bring the teachings of Jesus Christ to life in our school on a daily basis.
All school bus transportation is provided by the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority (OSTA). Visit the Transportation page of the OCSB website for more information
