Hello Prince of Peace Families,


We are preparing for the new school year and looking forward to getting back to school even though this year is going to be different.

First you must decide whether your child will be attending in person or online.  If you would like to select online learning and have not already done so, or if you selected online learning and would like to change to in-person learning; please complete this form by Friday August 21st.  

We will be sending you more detailed information in the next week about the start of school for learning both online and in person, for all of our students in grades kindergarten to six.  Whichever option you choose, you will be part of the POP family and we look forward to seeing you soon. Please check the Ottawa Catholic School Board website for other announcements and additional information about the OCSB Plan for Back to School.  

Here is a starting list of recommended school supplies, classroom teachers will provide a list of further supplies in September as needed:

  • refillable water bottle
  • cloth face mask
  • personal bottle of hand sanitizer (which can be refilled at school)
  •  waist belt or fanny pack that students can wear for recesses and in class to hold their masks and hand sanitizer
  • pencil case with personal pencil, markers or pencil crayons, eraser, pencil sharpener and scissors- these items will not be shared with other students
  •  a lunch bag
  • a back pack

We hope you are all enjoying the last part of the summer, staying safe and healthy!

Retrieval of Personal Belongings

Retrieval of Personal Belongings

From June 16 to 18  we can open the school up to parents to come to retrieve student items. Staff will be busy preparing student items to make this an easy task. Most of the critical information is covered in the POP Parent Access Letter. Please take a moment to read all the important information in the letter.

We do want to highlight a couple of items:

  1. You will be asked a series of screening questions before you will be permitted to access the school. These are questions from Ottawa Public Health.

  2. All kindergarten items are in the kindergarten hallway organized by class and have been bagged and labelled.

  3. Gr. 1-5 students have their items in the gym organized by grades.

  4. Gr. 6 students will have access once on Monday June 22 by individual appointment so they can pick up their Leaving Ceremony items as well. Ottawa Public Health has only approved one visit to the school.

  5. Please bring your own pen to sign in.

Message for grade 6 students from St Pat's

posted May 13, 2020, 11:30 AM by Heather McLean

Hello future St. Pat's Irish!

We know that the past few weeks have been so strange, but we also know that you are working hard to finish your grade 6 year off well, and to be ready for grade 7 next year. 

We were really looking forward to welcoming you for tours and to have you get to know your new school and we are so sorry that this cannot happen at this time. So, we are sending along our school video to remind you what St. Pat's is all about. Some of you may have seen this on our website as well.

Continue to take good care of yourselves and your families. All the best!
