Manor Park Public School - Ottawa, Ontario

Manor Park Public School

Adopted by: Chapters Rideau  

Manor Park Public School is a school with approximately 650 students. We have a significant number of students from households with low income, single-parents, newcomers to Canada including refugees, and students with a greater risk of lower academic achievement. Manor Park currently offers French Immersion and English from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6. As a result of our offering two streams of curriculum, catchment areas for the school are extremely large, resulting in Manor Park students coming from a very diverse cultural and socio-economic background. While some students do live in Manor Park and the surrounding neighbourhoods, approximately 80% of our students are bussed daily from as far as 10 kilometers away. For most of the students bussed in, Manor Park PS is not their home school but they attend Manor Park PS for a variety of reasons. 

Our library collection is very well-loved and we have many keen readers from the primary grades up through the junior grades (many who borrow 4 books at a time!) and they visit the library once a week to listen to a story, borrow books and sometimes to just visit a clean, safe space where they can sit quietly and read. For many students, they see visiting the library and borrowing a book, as an escape from their daily lives, many of who live in very unfortunate circumstances.  As a result of our large and diverse student population, there is a high demand for our school library. The prediction is that within the next couple of years our student population will total around 800 students. Unfortunately, we do not have the funds to be able to purchase English/French books, fiction/non-fiction books, books with indigenous content and equity/diversity content, as well dual language books, hi-low books for our struggling readers, and other resources that would be beneficial to our staff and students.
