Leadership Recognition

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


Our staff members have a wealth of strengths that contribute to student success at our school. The staff actively participates in numerous Board-wide professional development activities, and in turn, they provide the leadership and expertise needed to successfully implement Board initiatives. Staff leadership is recognized via personal interactions with one another, letters of thanks, announcements, school newsletters, assemblies, and performance appraisals.


Our School Council provides strong support for the initiatives that are undertaken at the school. School Council contributes to the Healthy School initiative by inviting speakers into the school to provide workshops, monthly pizza lunches. In addition, School Council hosts an Annual Multicultural Pot Luck Dinner in February and a Community BBQ in June. Appreciation is shown to parents, guardians and volunteers via personal contact, school announcements, school council meetings, school newsletters and at our annual appreciation tea.


Cambridge St. Community Public School receives tremendous support from the Ottawa community. Along with contributions/donations from many individuals, we have been fortunate to have had the following support:
  • Ottawa Network for Education, Breakfast for Learning support the breakfast program.
  • Parkdale Market supports hydroponic gardening - we currently have 2 grow towers in the building
  • Somerset West Community Health Centre provides parent workshops, storyboard walks, and other outreach programs
  • Ottawa Public Health provides dental, vision screening, immunization clinics and curriculum materials to support the health and well-being of our community members
