Fall 2017 Marketing Campaign

CTV Campaign

We are in the process of working on a new marketing plan with experts which includes new messaging. We will be filming new footage this year but at the moment, we have been working on the message: 

Joan of Arc Academy:
More than a school!
 
We have ads on CTV as well as radio ads on JUMP106.9 and MAGIC100.  Our ads are concurrently running with the OurKids Media campaign highlighting the upcoming Private School Expo.  
 
You can also see our printed ad in the latest version of the Ottawa Parenting Times and on the rink boards of the City of Ottawa.  Stay tuned for additional marketing updates!

2017 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING (AGM)

All members are cordially invited to the 2017 AGM which will be held on Thursday November 16, 2017 at 6:00pm in the gymnasium.  Childcare will be provided, free of charge, to make it easier for more families to attend and participate.

As a member of the Joan of Arc Academic Society of Ottawa, this is your opportunity to gain valuable information regarding the school, provide your input, and meet with fellow members. Your Board of Directors and your Head will be present to provide an overview on the last year, upcoming plans, and to answer questions about what has happened in the last year and what is being planned for the future.  

At the AGM you also will also be casting your vote for new directors. This means the school will be looking for new internal directors.  Our daughters and the Academy benefit tremendously from the in-house talent and energy of our parent population. Current and past board members will attest that their contributions have been rewarding and they have had great satisfaction in knowing they have made a difference in their daughters’ academic life. Participation on the Board will also ensure your family’s volunteering hours are complete each year! Please consider this opportunity to contribute.

Further, we have available external Board seats, and we would encourage you all to engage with your networks to put forward potential candidates for these positions.  External board members offer different perspectives at the Board level that provide a well balanced approach to governing the school.

We welcome all interested parents, and external Board members – at present, skills in business management, education, marketing and sales, technology, accounting or human resources would be of particular benefit to the Board to round out our current skillset.  Non-for-profit governance experience is a plus.

For more information on how to nominate for a Board seat, please click on the AGM documents link here.
