School Council News


We are a volunteer group of parents, community members, teachers and school administrators who work to make Notre Dame High School a welcoming, supportive and caring environment for our children to learn and grow. We invite all parents and guardians to join us!

At our meetings we learn from the Principal and teachers about the curriculum and programs at the school, as well as developments at the Ottawa Catholic School Board and at the Ontario Ministry of Education. We also hear from Student Council about all their exciting - and creative - initiatives to help maintain a high level of school spirit. The parishes that make up the Notre Dame family of schools and our local community representative helps us keep abreast of local issues and developments. We discuss all these issues and offer input from the parents' point of view.

Through our fundraising we help to support student-oriented activities and facilities for the school, such as awards, library supplies and student teams and trips. Join us at our popular International Potluck during Education Week in May, and bring your favourite dish to share.



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.
