Council News & Information

We would like to take the opportunity to thank you for supporting our Christmas Card Project!

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions we welcome your feedback so that we may improve should we run this project in the future.


At this time of year, there are many families in our GV school community that struggle to give their family a holiday meal and gifts.  Again this year, we will be collecting donations in support our Christmas Hamper program. Funds raised will be used to buy gift cards for food and gifts for families in need.  Donations can be made via cash online

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. 

Learn more about OCSB's PIC on the PIC page of the Board website.

The Catholic School Parents’ Association (CSPA) is a volunteer group representing the parents in our school board. We are a resource for school councils and the parent community for information on local and provincial education issues. 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.

Visit the CSPA website to learn more about CSPA and the work we do to support parents and their children in our schools.
