Discover our School
Our school respectfully acknowledges that we are located on the ancestral, traditional and unceded Indigenous territory of the Algonquin Peoples,
on whose territory we pray, learn, play and work.
The OCSB acknowledges the suffering experienced by Indigenous peoples in Canada's Residential Schools and is committed to Truth and Reconciliation. Read the OCSB Response to the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action to learn more.

All students are expected to be seated, ready to begin class, when the final bell rings for each period.
Our Learning Commons
As a centre for collaborative learning and inquiry, reference and research, the Learning Commons encourages students to pursue projects, develop interests and skills, and become knowledgeable and informed members of society. The Learning Commons also offers opportunities for students to complete homework and read for pleasure in a relaxed and studious environment. Staff are available to facilitate the research process and help guide students on their quest for quality sources of information. Staff are also able to support students and staff with technological questions and recommend the best web tools for academic purposes.
At Frank Ryan Catholic Intermediate we incorporate the liturgical year of the Catholic Church into our school year. Practically this means opening our school year with a mass, giving thanks to God for all we have during Thanksgiving, remembering those who have given their lives for us on Remembrance Day, preparing our hearts for Jesus’ birth during Advent, Celebrating the Birth of our Lord during Christmas, marking our foreheads with ashes on Ash Wednesday, practicing the spiritual disciplines of prayer, alms-giving and fasting during Lent, having a passion play during Holy Week, celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord at Easter time, praying the rosary during the month of May and closing our school year with a final liturgy.
We also connect certain activities with the seasons such as making Christmas Hampers during advent for families in need in our school, collecting food for the poor during Lent or Christmas caroling for seniors before Christmas.
Recently renovated, our school chapel is open daily to all students and staff. It is located in the heart of the school on the first floor near the main office. Students have the opportunity throughout the year to gather for our teaching masses, liturgies of the word, spiritual talks and prayer opportunities. The chapel can be reserved by all teachers for class prayer and reflection in accord with Chapel Use Guidelines.
Our school's current Chaplaincy Leader is Mr. Geoff Guitard.
The Chaplaincy Team Leader facilitates the Christian life of the school in a very concrete manner by being available to students, staff, and parents so that all may participate in developing the faith dimension of our school community. Personal and Christian development will be provided through interviews, discussion groups, peer ministry, class visits, social action projects, communal prayer, and retreats. This approach is designed to provide students with concrete experiences that promote gospel values such as service, community, family, and servant leadership.
Our school community is served by the following parishes:
