Leadership Recognition

Leadership Recognition

“Leadership in the OCDSB is the demonstration of personal initiative to achieve a positive outcome.”


At Severn Avenue Public School, opportunities for students to develop and demonstrate leadership abound. The “Success at Severn” Plan ensures that students understand the expectations throughout their busy school day. In doing so, the likelihood of success is maximized. Student initiative and leadership is recognized at our monthly Assemblies. 


Our staff members have a wealth of professional qualifications including Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Arts, Education, Fine Arts, Physical Education and Sciences, as well as additional qualifications in Special Education, English as a Second Language, Music, Visual Arts, Guidance, and Computers in Education. They have actively participated in numerous Board-wide professional development activities in literacy and numeracy, and we recognize their initiative by providing and supporting opportunities for further professional growth. We also recognize staff leadership via personal interactions with one another, letters of thanks, school announcements, school newsletters, assemblies, performance appraisals, and our principal’s report to school council.


Our community is small but shows support for our school in many ways. Fundraising events such as our Terry Fox Run are well attended. Many community members, coordinated by the Ottawa Network for Education attend our school to support literacy and math initiatives. A partnership with MASC affords us professional musicians and artists to work with our children. Our dedicated school council meets monthly. As invaluable partners, we thank our parents, guardians and volunteers on an ongoing basis, and look for opportunities to acknowledge them, such as in school announcements, our principal’s report to school council, school newsletters, and our annual volunteer appreciation event.


We recognize our community partners through our school announcements, school newsletters, school website, principal’s report to school council, and thank you cards. We also invite them to events and awards ceremonies.
