Kindergarten Classes at St. George School

Hello! My name is Roisin Philippe and I am the principal of St George School. This is a very strange spring for registration at our school given the current Health situation in our Province and City. Normally, at this time, we would be hosting a Welcome to Kindergarten evening. At this point, it will be most unlikely that this will happen before the end of the school year given the current health situation in our Province.

Having been a kindergarten teacher for many years, I can tell you that it is a very special time in your child’s life where they get to explore many new and exciting things alongside similar age peers who encourage out of the box thinking. Their formal education starts in kindergarten. They will deepen their creative side through a variety of activities, learn to be critical thinkers and problem solvers – becoming more resilient individuals and independent learners, learn the importance of collaboration with adults and children, expand their communication skills to express themselves, share their voice, learn the importance of good character skills through manners and being respectful of others, and seeing their role as a citizen of their class, their school and their community. The best part of all of this is that it is all done through play! The educators provide many provocations but take their lead from the children, seeking out their interests and building on their skills. I truly hope that your child will be able to engage in these wonderful opportunities with us at St George.

For more information about what our Kindergarten program can offer you and your child with the Ottawa Catholic School Board, please click on the following link OCSB – Kindergarten What’s it all about?

How to register

  1. Find your school
  2. Submit online registration form and collect documents

Specific questions regarding registration can be directed to admissions@ocsb.ca.

If you have any questions about St George school, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at roisin.philippe@ocsb.ca We are currently working on a Virtual Welcome to Kindergarten which we will share with all who are registered shortly!!

Pete’s Plant Giveaway – May 16

Hello all,

I am a Champlain Park resident (140 Northwestern Ave.) and am familiar to some of you.

I need your help with a charitable act in the community. My 2 children and I have raised a large number of tomato plant seedlings (see attached picture) of 3 varieties.

[Rows of Styrofoam Cups with Tomato Seedlings]

We would normally be selling them at local school Elmdale’s Annual Spring event but of course this is not possible this year.

We are proposing that for every plant that finds a happy home, we will donate $2.00 to the Parkdale Food Center’s General Operations fund (there are approx. 140 plants).
