Leadership Recognition

Leadership Recognition

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

Students

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 so doing, the likelihood of success is maximized. Each class appoints a Class Ambassador whose job it is to host “guest teachers” when their regular teacher is absent. Student initiative and leadership is also recognized by teachers and students alike as awards are distributed based on input from both teachers and students. Monthly Awards Assemblies recognize and inspire achievement and leadership.

Staff

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.

Parents/Guardians/Volunteers

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.

Community

We recognize our community partners through our school announcements, school newsletters, school we site, principal’s report to school council, and thank you cards. We also invite them to events, awards ceremonies, and the grade 6 leaving ceremony.
