Principal's Message

Welcome and Bienvenue to Viscount Alexander Public School!

Situated in the beautiful Sandy Hill community, surrounded by parks, embassies, and uOttawa, Viscount Alexander Public School is a place where students grow, cultivate relationships, and develop the skills necessary to be successful adults.  We offer bi-lingual kindergarten, Early French Immersion and English with Core French from grades 1 to 6. In addition, we are an Extended Day Program (EDP) site and provide before and after school care to students registered in the program.

We extend care, collaboration and commitment to every student, parent, and community member. Working together with high expectations and targeted supports, we focus on preparing our students academically, socially, mentally and physically for an ever changing and exciting future.

We embed OCDSB Character Traits and Exit Outcomes into curricular lessons with an emphasis on developing critical thinking skills, problem solving skills and effective communication skills - ensuring that our students are lifelong learners. As well, students are encouraged to balance school work and participate in a variety of enriching extra-curricular experiences that are offered at Viscount Alexander.


Our unique location in Sandy Hill has allowed us to build strong relationships with many partners in the community including u Ottawa Athletics, u Ottawa Faculty of Education, Sandy Hill Community Health Centre, Sandy Hill Community Centre, Action Sandy Hill, and MASC (Multicultural Arts for Schools and Communities). These partnerships have enriched our school in many ways. 


The Viscount team looks forward to working with you, our parents and community partners, through parent conferences, field trips, volunteer opportunities, after school programs, school council, and special events.  Stay connected by visiting our website, subscribing to our calendar, following us on Twitter, and looking for our electronic school newsletters throughout the school year. 

Lastly, a warm welcome to our new and returning families! I’m looking forward to meeting all of you.


Scott Macklin, Principal
