Principal's Message

Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians,

Welcome to Elgin Street Public School. It is an honor to serve as the principal alongside with the wonderful educators, parent volunteers, and community partners who all work together to make Elgin Street PS a great elementary school in downtown Ottawa.

Situated at the heart of the city,  we are dedicated to providing a nurturing and inspiring environment where every student can reach their full potential. We are not just a school; we are a diverse community of learners, dreamers, and achievers.

To the parents and guardians, your partnership is invaluable. We are here to work together in fostering the growth and development of your children. We are proud of our active Parent Council who are integral in supporting our school’s goals and learning opportunities. 

Elgin Street offers many opportunities that enrich student life. From building gardens that flourish with indigenous plants, arts and music experiences, athletics, and learning experiences in collaboration with community partnerships to name a few. We owe this to the dedication of our staff, parents, community members who make these events possible. 

At Elgin Street, “it’s cool to be kind.”
