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)
