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.

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!!

Rosemount Revitalization Open House – December 13, 15

Invitation: Open House for Rosemount Revitalization

Ottawa Public Library invites members of the community, partners, and customers of OPL’s Rosemount branch to view preliminary designs for revitalizing and improving the 100-year-old branch.

There will be two Open House sessions at the Rosemount branch:

  • Thursday, December 13 from 6 to 8 pm
  • Saturday, December 15 from noon to 2 pm

The branch is located at 18 Rosemount Avenue. Registration is not required.

OPL is working with local design firm +VG Architects, who have been engaged to conduct the revitalization, including public consultation to ensure community needs are met. The preliminary designs reflect input and suggestions from the public, further to consultation online and in person in October 2018. Members of the public will be able to meet the architects and OPL staff, ask questions and share comments about the most recent design.

Designs will be finalized in the coming months and presented to the OPL Board in February.

Construction work is expected to begin in spring 2019 for completion in late 2019 during which Library services will be provided at a nearby temporary location.
