Leadership Recognition

“Leadership in the OCDSB is the demonstration of personal initiative to achieve a positive outcome.”


Dunlop’s students are provided with numerous opportunities to develop and demonstrate their leadership skills throughout the year. Students from our junior pision volunteer for our Green Team, Milk Helpers Program, Spirit Committee, and Kindergarten Helpers. Our students all have the opportunity to participate in intramural sports events and attend Board athletic events, as well as various arts activities and clubs. We are very proud of their sense of responsibility and involvement in school initiatives. In addition to informal recognition on a regular basis, we also acknowledge their contributions in our classrooms, school announcements, newsletters, awards assemblies, Dunlop PS’s website/blog, and end-of-year awards ceremonies; as well as the Principal’s report to School Council.


Our staff members have a wealth of professional qualifications including Arts, Physical Education, and the Sciences, as well as additional qualifications in Special Education, English as a Second Language, Music, Visual Arts and Computers in Education. They give willingly of their time to provide our students with house league and competitive sports programs, choirs, leadership opportunities and various clubs. The staff actively participate in numerous Board-wide professional development activities in literacy and numeracy, and we recognize this professionalism by providing and supporting opportunities for further professional growth. Teamwork and collaboration are apparent in all initiatives. We also recognize staff leadership via personal interactions with one another, letters of thanks, school announcements, school newsletters, school’s website, assemblies, performance appraisals, and our Principal’s report to our School Council.


Every year, our volunteers contribute numerous hours of support for the benefit of students in our school. Our dedicated school council meets monthly, supporting all school initiatives. School Council has also provided the school with busing for extracurricular trips, arts support and classroom resources. Our students are enjoying 2 new play structures, one in the primary yard and the other in our kindergarten yard. The many years of fundraising have helped support this initiative. As invaluable partners, we thank our parents, guardians and volunteers on an on-going basis, and look for opportunities to acknowledge them such as school announcements, our Principal’s report to School Council, school newsletters, school’s website, and our annual volunteer appreciation event.


Each month, students are encouraged to develop as strong, responsible, and caring citizens. Monthly Award Assemblies celebrate our student and staff successes. We recognize our community partners through our school announcements, school newsletters, school website, Principal’s report to School Council, and thank you cards.
