Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Upon my arrival at Bayview P.S. in September 2017, I was met with a sense of community and family. Staff, students and parents create an inclusive, safe environment where students can reach their full potential in a French language environment. Students are encouraged to take risks and persevere in order to build on their knowledge and continue to challenge themselves.

principal's photoI have spent my entire career in French Immersion schools, working alongside dedicated teachers who share the love of learning. From my early beginnings as a primary teacher at Castor Valley E.S., to my years in administration at Rideau Valley M.S., Kars Public School, Kars on the Rideau and Barrhaven P.S., I continued to be in awe at the level of care and dedication within our schools and our board.

I must admit that I am grateful to my parents who instilled in us a sense of family and pride of our French Canadian culture. I must admit that my children, Mychele and Nicolas, who are now grown, continue to realize the benefits of speaking both official languages.

I would like to thank Vivian Bright, previous Principal, for her dedication and hard work and we wish her the best with her moves to Europe. Safe travels Vivian.

I look forward to meeting all of you and please feel free to contact me at any time if you have any comments or questions. ( I would encourage you to follow us on Facebook and to ensure that we have your email address as most of our communications are done via email.

Wishing you all a fabulous year.


Denise Gagnon-Lebrun
