From the Principal

Welcome Oakwood Collegiate Institute students to the 2021-22 school year.  I hope your summer break was safe, pleasant and enjoyable. While we were ever hopeful that this pandemic would be behind us, we know we have a long way to go, but we will do that together.  Over the last few years Oakwood students and staff have continuously rose to the challenges that many have faced.  We will continue to strive to be the best we can be while taking care of ourselves and each other. 

In the spirit of OCI I remain confident that we will all be mindful, attentive, and respectful of each other by continuing to follow these simple steps; wear your face mask when required, maintain appropriate social distancing, wash your hands frequently, and complete the daily self-screening prior to leaving your home in the morning. We all have an important role in making OCI the special place it is, and may we continue in the spirit of Oakwood C.I. to …

Take care of yourself and each other,

Strive to be the best you can be,

Don’t be afraid to be different

Be an original,

Take risks,

Think outside-the-box,

Think other

Think OCI
