Proposed boundary consultation regarding schools in the Barrhaven South community

We’re opening a new Catholic elementary school in Barrhaven South in 2023 for students in Kindergarten to Grade 6! The new school will offer French Immersion and an Extended Day Program for before and after school care. It will also house a Pre-School Childcare Centre that will be built as part of the project. This new school is currently scheduled to open for the 2023-2024 school year.

Proposed boundary changes

On Tuesday, February 22, 2022, the OCSB Board of Trustees approved the public consultation process for the proposed Barrhaven South Catholic Elementary school attendance boundary. The proposed attendance boundary for the new school affects the existing boundaries of St. Benedict, St. Cecilia and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton elementary schools.
