An Invitation to a Fun Filled evening at the OBE Reunion 2019

At the close of the evening of the 2017 reunion, these positive comments were overheard: "Best reunion yet!" and "We must do this again." So plans are underway for a reunion in the fall of 2019, to be held on Saturday, September 21st.

 

So please, come join us as we once again walk down memory lane. There are former and current staff members who would love to see you again.

 

Watch this space for further details.

Marjorie Loughrey Artists in the Schools Program

Mloughery

Marjorie made a significant contribution to education through her years as an Ottawa School Board Trustee. She believed that an education in the arts was fundamental to the emotional, intellectual and social development of each child, and this conviction led her to play a lead role in establishing the Canterbury School of the Arts. The award in her memory funds an artist to work for one week each year withall the students in one of Ottawa’s inner city elementary schools.

 

The Education Foundation of Ottawa administers the annual award.
