Principal's Message

My name is Brian Chiasson and it’s a real honour to serve as the proud Principal of Rockcliffe Park Public School. I am of French Acadian descent and just finished spending four and a half years as Principal at Featherston Drive Public School. I’ve been an educator in our District for the past 23 years, serving five different school communities, each representing the breadth and depth of Ottawa’s identity in its own special way. I strongly believe that my personal and professional backgrounds will contribute to the established culture and heritage of our school.

RPPS is a busy and vibrant place - we offer an English stream program, as well as Early French Immersion. We have several projects on the go, including an upcoming centennial celebration in May, a renovation project for one of the main floor wings, and a new Learning Commons we are hoping to expand upon with a makerspace area. Being new to the school, I have lots of learning to do, and I am confident that the learning curve will be a smooth one, considering the  competent and dynamic staff I am blessed to work alongside.

I know that at RPPS we work hard to ensure that ALL Dragons have equitable access to authentic and innovative learning opportunities. We firmly believe that social and emotional well-being are directly connected to academic achievement. For the remainder of the 2022-23 school year, I can assure you this will remain an area of focus for us. 

“Be kind, be brave, be a Dragon” is a well-known slogan that we work hard to instill in our students. I look forward to working with you, our partners in education, to ensure RPPS is a safe and respectful place for all who learn, work and play here.
