EQAO STUDENT ADVISORY COMMITTEE

posted Apr 16, 2019, 5:36 AM by Stephen Myers   [ updated Apr 16, 2019, 5:37 AM ]


Will you be between Grades 7 and 12 during the 2019–2020 school year? 

Do you want to impact Ontario students’ educational experience? 

If yes, you should consider submiƫing an application to be a member of Education Quality and Accountability Office’s (EQAO’s) Student Advisory Committee! 

The Student Advisory Committee is a group that helps foster a two-way conversation between Ontario’s students and EQAO. Students are the focus of EQAO’s work, and we value learners’ perspectives on everything that we do. During its inaugural year, the Student Advisory Committee met three times virtually. These meetings allowed committee members to provide feedback and advice on key areas of focus as well as promising practices to support students writing EQAO assessments. As EQAO seeks to continuously improve our programs, we want to ensure that students’ voices are being heard. The Student Advisory Committee is a unique forum for students to share ideas and experiences.

Updated Bussing Information Starting March 4th, 2019

posted Mar 4, 2019, 8:49 AM by Paula Joly

Last week, email messages were sent by the school with information from The Ottawa Student Transportation Authority (OSTA) about changes to transportation was sent to parents and students. There are two main changes to service:

  • Some of our students will continue on yellow school buses with some routes being combined. Letters are being sent home today with students who are riding the yellow buses where routes have been combined that identify their stops and pick-up/drop-off times. We want to ensure all families have received this important information.

  • Some of our high school students will now take OC Transpo (Routes 82, 88, and 152) to and from school. These students were given their Presto passes on Friday and attended a presentation regarding the changes in their transportation.

Any transportation questions should be directed to Mae Wilson at OSTA by phone, 613-224-8800, ext 2383. If you would like to confirm your child’s bus stop and time, please visit the Bus Stop Finder Tool on the OSTA website (www.ottawaschoolbus.ca). If you would like to check for any bus delays, please visit the OSTA bus planner and you can register for email updates here.

We would also encourage you to email us at stpaul@ocsb.ca if you did not receive the email so we can update our contact information.
