About Our School


Welcome to Prince of Peace Catholic School!  

We serve children ages 4 to 12 in Kindergarten to Grade 6.  As a Catholic Community, our mission at the Ottawa Catholic School Board is to provide all of our students with quality education for the mind, body and spirit through an emphasis on academic excellence, social responsibility and Catholic values.  We value working collaboratively with students, parents, and community members to achieve our vision and goals. The Prince of Peace staff, parents and St Peter's parish team are committed to providing an environment to support all learners and to help our students develop a love of learning in order to thrive in a changing world.  

We welcome the new families in our community. On behalf of the entire staff, I invite you to visit our school. We are proud of our students, our programs, and the full school community. 

Jennifer Prichett,

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; ... and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace"
Isaiah 9:6

Spiritual Theme

Our Spiritual Theme 2018-2021

The Ottawa Catholic School Board (OCSB) has again adopted a Board-wide Spiritual Theme to guide the school board community through the years 2018 to 2021. Our Spiritual Theme “Seek Justice, Love Kindness & Mercy, Walk Humbly with God” enables our staff, students, and community to dig deep into the Gospel to make real and meaningful connections with our everyday lives. This three-year theme will focus on Catholic social teachings to align with global competencies and encourage learners to think globally and act locally.
