St. Jerome Terry Fox Walk

On Friday, September 22nd, our St. Jerome school community will be participating in the annual Terry Fox School Run to raise money for cancer research. Last year, we once again broke our fundraising records by raising over $5000 through online donations! 

Please visit St. Jerome Terry Fox Run to contribute to our school's efforts and help us match or even beat last year's amount.

This year, we are also encouraging our students to add to the spirit of the day by wearing crazy socks for Terry Fox.

Register online throughout the summer.
School starts Tuesday, September 5.

All OCSB elemenatry schools are closed throughout the summer. Register for school using our online form. If you have questions, contact our Admissions Department by email at or by phone at 613-228-3338.
