We acknowledge that our learning is taking place on unceded and unsurrendered Algonquin Territory. We thank the Algonquin Nation for hosting us and recognize their enduring presence on this land.

Our Staff

Stonecrest Elementary School has a staff of over 50 people.  This includes teachers, educational assistants, early childhood educators, custodians, library and office staff as well as our principal and vice-principal.  Our staff works collaboratively to provide a consistent delivery model for instruction. 

Our Community

Stonecrest Elementary School is located in the northwest corner of the City of Ottawa. Sitting on fourteen acres of land, the facility is in a rural setting. The school serves the many farms, towns and villages in the area including Dunrobin, Woodlawn, Constance Bay, Fitzroy Harbour, Kinburn and Galetta. The support from parents and guardians provided to Stonecrest is part of the inclusive partnership that makes the school such a positive learning environment for our students.

The Stonecrest School Council meets on the second Tuesday of the month in the school library; meetings are open to the community. The Council serves as an advisory body to the school principal in all aspects of school life; is a forum for discussion and the exchange of ideas on educational issues; liaises with the district-wide organization of School Councils; and supports the school in a wide variety of supports, volunteer and fundraising events.

Facilities and Resources

The school was originally built in 1998.   The school has the Wilson Library Resource Centre with computerized circulation. The Wendell Styles Memorial Gymnasium is a double gym for both student and community use. It is equipped with a sound system and a full production stage. Our rural location affords us an exceptionally large playground containing 2 play structures, a separate kindergarten yard, and sports fields.
