Students from the OCSB proved their bilingual mettle by taking home numerous honours at the 41st French as a Second Language Ottawa Regional Contest. About 130 Grade 11 and 12 students from three regional school boards came out to demonstrate their skills in four areas: oral interview, composition, listening and reading. A total of 46 students from seven different OCSB schools took part. Photo: Wiinners Daniel Chen and Molly McGuire of St. Francis Xavier Catholic High School.
Director of Education (elect) Denise Andre has appointed Thomas D’Amico to the position of Associate Director of Education and Assistant Secretary, effective July 1, 2015. Mr. D’Amico is currently the Superintendent of Human Resources as well as Superintendent of the St. Mark and St. Patrick’s Families of Schools. “Tom’s experiences to date have prepared him well for the next phase of his career and I believe the Board is extremely fortunate to have an educational leader of his calibre in its midst,” said Denise Andre. Mr. D’Amico has been with the OCSB for 25 years in various capacities. He has served as a Teacher, Department Head, Vice-Principal and Principal, and, since 2009, as a Superintendent of Schools. He served the Board admirably as the Superintendent of Learning Technologies.
Eleven of our inspiring Ottawa Catholic School Board teachers were recently named finalists for Capital Educators’ Awards. On May 21, 2015, two of our OCSB finalists, Alyson Larade (left) and Chantal Tadiello (right), were honoured as winners at the 14th annual EduGala held at Algonquin College. Hosted by the Ottawa Network for Education, the annual event honours educators from around the Ottawa region who demonstrate teaching excellence and instil a passion for learning in their students. Congratulations!
