Council News & Information

St Theresa School Council Welcomes 
Parents to our School!!! 

Our Catholic School Council strives to be active and vital in our school community.  St. Theresa Catholic is a wonderful school and the enhancements that our Council provides to our students through curricular and co-curricular events and tools is invaluable.  Your support in our activities and fundraising always goes directly back to our school community in many ways.

The St.Theresa Catholic School Council works in cooperation with the principal and school staff to ensure the best for our students.  Rules for our engagement are outlined in our constitution.   

Volunteers in OCSB schools

The OCSB has adopted a new procedure regarding volunteers in OCSB schools. All volunteers are required to submit a Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC). Apply online with the Ottawa Police Service. Contact our school or for a Volunteer VSC Request letter which can be uploaded to the site in order to waive the application fee. 

There is a fee associated with the records check. Please submit your receipt to the office for reimbursement.

Volunteer Committees 

If you would like to volunteer at any of our amazing events please contact us through the school email. or

There are many available resources that can be borrowed through the school Learning Commons. Items include videos and books to support parenting and your child's education. See the bookcase in the school lobby.

OCSB Parent Involvement Committee (PIC)

The Ottawa Catholic School Board Parent Involvement Committee (PIC) is a provincially mandated committee made up of parents, a trustee, a principal and the Director of Education. The purpose of PIC is to support, encourage and enhance parent engagement at the school board level in order to improve student achievement and well-being. The parent members of the OCSB PIC are appointed by CSPA. 

Learn more about OCSB's PIC on the PIC page of the Board website.

The Catholic School Parents’ Association (CSPA)
 is a volunteer group representing the parents in our school board. We are a resource for school councils and the parent community for information on local and provincial education issues. Through our website, Twitter, and email newsletters we provide updates on education in Ottawa & Ontario; plus we share great tips, resources and information to help parents support their children in school. All parents are welcome and encouraged to join our e-mail list, follow us on Twitter or attend CSPA monthly meetings.
