Our Community

Agincourt Road Public School is located in the mature residential community of Bel-Air Park and Copeland Park in Ottawa’s west end. Our school grounds are adjacent to a City of Ottawa park, a playground and sports field. Our parents provide a great deal of support and get involved on a daily basis. Our Parent School Council actively supports the school in enriching the learning experience for all students. Our School Council organizes a variety of activities for parents and students such as a Spring BBQ, Family Dances, and Parent Workshops as well as providing services for students such as a pizza program and a hot-lunch program. We also offer a Snack Program for students. 

The Council helps improve students’ educational experience by fundraising for activities that enrich the students’ learning experience at school. Agincourt Road P.S. has enjoyed a rich tradition of successful School Council events such as the Used Book Sale and the Walk-a-thon. Our School Council is currently undertaking a fundraising initiative to rejuvenate our play yard by incorporating natural elements to create a dynamic interactive playscape.

Safe Schools Initiatives

Our school code of conduct is shared with students and parents in our parent handbook, on the school website and through assemblies and classroom newsletters. Conflict resolution skills and positive behaviour strategies are taught and modelled throughout the school. The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board’s Community of Character initiative is taught with a cross-curricular approach to promote good citizenship. We believe that the relationships and partnerships between staff, students, parents and the community are the building blocks of a safe and caring learning community. It is through these relationships that we model and practice to one another, the Ottawa District School Board’s community of character attributes.

Fragrance and Scent-Free Environment 

At Agincourt Road P.S., we have students and staff with sensitivities and allergies to
fragrances and scented products. We would ask that caregivers, staff, and students not wear or use fragrances, or scented products in order to ensure the health of our students and staff. It is for this reason that Agincourt Road Public School is a fragrance and scent-safe environment. We thank you in advance for your understanding and consideration.
