Principal's Message

Photo of PrincipalDear Parents and Guardians,

Please let me take this opportunity to introduce myself, Katia Sioufi Guarna, as the Principal at Rockcliffe Park Public School.

The staff and I have been preparing for the new school year, and we are excited about all the learning and creative critical thinking that will occur over the next school year!

 A little about myself and my work experience.

My first teaching year was in Toronto where I taught grade 2 Early French Immersion. I moved back to Ottawa and worked at Manotick Public School (JK-5), where I taught for fourteen years grades SK to 5 French as a Second Language (Immersion and Core). I then moved to Roberta Bondar School (JK-8) where I started my career in special education, first as a Learning Resource teacher for one year and then as a Learning Support teacher for four years. 

My first assignment as Vice Principal was at Roberta Bondar Public School  for one year. I was then vice principal at Vincent Massey PS (JK-8) for another year before I became the Principal at Parkwood Hills PS (JK-6) a French Immersion center. Three years later the school closed and I became principal of Roch Carrier Elementary school (JK-6) for two years. I then went back to Vincent Massey PS as a principal for the last five years before becoming principal at Rockcliffe Park PS(JK-6) .

I am very happy to have been appointed to Rockcliffe Park PS, which has both English and French Immersion programming, I look forward to meeting your child(ren) and you over the next little while.

In the meantime, I encourage you to follow Rockcliffe Park on Twitter @SpiritRPPS and to consult this website, where we will store communications that are sent home.

In an effort to reduce our school's use of paper, I will be sending our weekly Updates electronically, and will make every effort to place pertinent information on the school website's calendar. Please do not hesitate to contact me via email or at school (613) 749-5387.

Wishing you a fantastic year working together to enhance your child's education at RPPS.
