Principal's Message

Welcome!  Bienvenue!     Nestled in between the beautiful village of Navan and cornfields, the furthest eastern school in OCDSB, we  offer a bilingual two year kindergarten program, with grade 1-8 dual track Early French Immersion and English programs.

Heritage Staff are committed to over 300 students.  We strive to create a collaborative and caring environment, utilizing restorative practices to assist with the social and emotional development of all students.   Our dedicated 30 plus staff team participate fully in professional learning activities and meet regularly to ensure we are meeting the academic and social/emotional needs of our students.

We offer a rich academic program, as well as a variety of extracurricular activities and clubs in sports and the arts.  We recognize the value of relationship building with our students and the importance of ensuring there is a great sense of belonging.  The “extras” are an example of our strong desire to attain this goal.

Our School Learning Plan is developed with the OCDSB outcomes in mind, as well as in line with the province’s Renewed Math Strategy.  Developing sound literacy skills is also a priority across all curricular areas. As we work to prepare our students to become digitally proficient and innovative thinkers/collaborators, we continue to build our technology inventory for both staff and students so that there are ample opportunities to   integrate technology skills in their daily work. Our students are encouraged to develop positive work habits and become ethical decision makers in our community and beyond.

Heritage is extremely fortunate to have an engaged, caring and hard-working  parent community that is supportive of student learning and our school activities. They are present in classrooms, assist with supervision on field trips, and respond to our many invitations to support us where needed.  Our School Council is growing and includes a vibrant and enthusiastic group of parents who are important stakeholders in our overall plan for improving life at Heritage for our students.

Please do not hesitate to contact  me should you have any questions or concerns.   You are a partner in your child’s education and that partnership is valued and appreciated.
