Immunization of Students
The Immunization of School Pupils Act states that students attending schools in Ontario are required to be vaccinated against nine diseases, or else have a valid exemption. Parents are required to report all immunizations done at the doctor's office to Ottawa Public Health. Every year, OPH conducts an immunization surveillance campaign and students whose records remain incomplete may be suspended from school.
If your child requires immunization, you should receive a first notice from Ottawa Public Health, and you are encouraged to:
  • have your child immunized; and/or
  • advise OPH (not the school) that you have done so. Details on how to update OPH are on the written notice that you will receive in the mail. Parents with questions can contact OPH at 613-580-6744. 
Cooperative Education Corner
All Saints has a large number of students who enrol in cooperative education courses to pursue some practical work opportunities. In the coming weeks we will feature some of our students and the experiences they are having. This week: Featured Co-op Student: Jasmine Pawlikowski.
Jasmine Pawlikowski is in Grade 11 and she is doing her Co-op placement at St. Gabriel’s Elementary School.
Jasmine has had many opportunities to take on leadership roles while working in the Grade ⅔ classroom. She said that “I really enjoys working in small groups of children on reading comprehension, sentence writing or different science and math activities. I enjoy planning and teaching a music lesson to the kids each week. I also really like the atmosphere of the school. The children are so sweet and all of the teachers are always so kind and helpful. At my workplace I can exemplify the Catholic Virtue of excellence. I can do this by taking initiative and asking what tasks needs to be done around the workplace. I can also come up with goals and plan things that you would like to do at my placement to show good habits and responsibility. I can also exemplify love. I can do this by always be willing to help the children with work or if they’re upset, to show that I am caring and have compassion. I can also show kindness towards the children to create good relationships and friendships but while also having a teacher role.”

There is a great deal of information on the CSPA website regarding information for parents and upcoming sessions. You can visit the website here.
