A SINCERE THANK YOU: To Our School Council

On behalf of all staff, I want to express my gratitude and sincere appreciation to our Devonshire School Council.You truly reflect a group of parents who always take care of all students in our school. You are kind, generous and giving of your time to complement and enrich the learning at Devonshire. Meg King will be leaving as a terrific co-chair following a busy two year tenure. We will miss her sense of humour and dedication to the community.
 
Thank you to parents who have volunteered their time to help with field trips, athletic activities, reading to our students, making pancakes, boiling maple syrup and for supporting countless endeavours.

We look forward to our 2015-2016 school year in our temporary location at St-Ambrose.
 
Warmest Regards,
 
Michele Tatartcheff

Welcome to our School!

Devonshire Community Public School is pleased to announce that during the renovation process we will be located at St-Ambrose School. We will have this facility for the 2015 - 2016 school year.

Our new address (effective September 2015):
175 Beech Street 
Ottawa, ON 
K1Y 3S8

We are extending a warm welcome to Jackie Nuttall, our new Office Administrator at Devonshire Community Public School.

Devonshire Community Public School is a single stream Early French Immersion School. Our mission is to provide each child with the opportunity to achieve his or her potential and become fluent in a second language. We strive to develop in all our students, social responsibility, critical thinking skills, creativity, academic growth to meet established outcomes, and a life-long love of learning.

The notions of family and community are highly valued at our school. The relatively small size  of our school means that children feel a warm welcome here. Students, teachers, support staff, parents, School Council, and the community at large work together in promoting a true partnership that makes Devonshire Community Public School everything a school should be.
