About Our School

Opened in 1961, Our Lady of Victory School is located in the west end of Ottawa serving students from the Pinecrest/ Queensway area, right behind the IKEA. Our community is a wonderful mix of families from all walks of life and nationalities.

Our catholic history: Feast of Our Lady of Victory: Oct.7

In 1521, a request from Pope Pius V, called upon all Christians to pray the Rosary for the success of the battle in Lepanto.
Today, we recognize, respect and celebrate all faiths, aiming for world peace.

French Immersion is part of our full-day kindergarten program and again offered in grade four, grade five and grade 6. 
For more information on our French programs:
