PROPOSAL TO OPEN A NEW FRENCH CATHOLIC ELEMENTARY SCHOOL For Old Ottawa South, Old Ottawa East, and the Glebe

OTTAWA, October 27, 2016 - A parents’ committee backed by the Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE) held a public consultation on Wednesday evening regarding the possibility of opening a French Catholic elementary school for families in Old Ottawa South, Old Ottawa East, the Glebe and the surrounding area.

The consultation, held in the Saint Paul University amphitheatre, met with enthusiasm on the part of many parents who came to learn more about the proposal and talk about their vision of what an elementary school should be and their community’s distinct needs.

“I am very pleased to see how receptive parents are to this proposal,” said Johanne Lacombe, CECCE Chair. “Everyone who attended the public consultation had an opportunity to talk to the working group about their needs, expectations, and dreams for this school. The CECCE sees this public consultation step as crucial to the process of creating a school that reflects its community,” she added.

CECCE Director of Education Réjean Sirois said he is very excited about this proposal, which is particularly meaningful to him. “The fact that there are so many Francophone families in this part of Ottawa strengthens the CECCE’s resolve to open a French Catholic elementary school to serve this community. Many of those families are looking for a school rooted in Catholic values of hard work and caring, a school that recognizes the role that innovative practices play in shaping the citizens of tomorrow. That is exactly what the CECCE has to offer them.”

The proposal is still in the early stages, so the parents’ committee, backed by the CECCE, invites anyone who wants to know more about the proposal and stay informed about next steps to like the group’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/projetecolevieuxottawa and follow hashtag #cecceGlebe on Twitter.
