Elf on the Shelf at #OCSB

We first became aware of EotS in 2013 when an Ottawa priest contacted us with concerns about it and how it was being used at schools

Several teachers have told this blog that they use “Elf on the Shelf” to try to keep discipline during the secular frenzy of December (as opposed to ADVENT!)

This is simply wrong from both a Catholic and psychological perspective




So, instead of using discipline and teaching virtues, teachers use “EotS”.

This is but 2 examples of EotS tweets coming from #OCSB teachers




This is the professional portfolio from UO student teacher @aleey005. It is to explore her “thinking processes and growth”.

It is a bit concerning that many of her blog posts are written at the Grade 6 level (some made it to Grade 8). We originally thought the blog was for her students because the writing was so simplistic with short sentences and simple words. She is not illiterate but the level of writing makes us believe a Professor at UO who told us that he thought that 20% of his graduates (his department is in the Arts Faculty) were functionally illiterate at graduation.

One of her blog posts was a training day at the Teachers College with CCGSD (Jer’s Vision). It is frightening to think that future (and current) OCSB teachers do not know that the Catholic Church rejects unscientific Gender Ideology from CCGSD. Pope Francis  compared it to Hitler indoctrination













Shocking News: Cardinal Collins told PCs to “back off” on sex ed fight

As we have said before, Sex ed is only a tiny part of the problem at Ontario “catholic” schools. Bigger problems are the OECTA teachers union and the cross curricular EIE (equity and inclusive education) curriculum.

That being said, we have constantly wondered why the 2015 Wynne sex program (even worse than the 2010 McGuinty program) was accepted to readily by Cardinal Collins in 2015 (in opposition to what Archbishop Prendergast said in Feb 2015) and the opposite of what he did in 2010.

Cardinal Collins went so far as to call the PC House Leader, Jim Wilson, to a diner at 730am and tell him this:

“We [Catholic hierarchy] don’t want to make a big issue of it, so can you guys [PC Party] back off”



Why is the Cardinal Collins selling out the children? Exhaustion from losing Bill 13 fight? Desperate attempt to keep govt funding for pseudo-catholic schools?

In other news,

More HPE materials are now out to the school boards – no sign of it on the ICE website so people can analyze. Why the hiding? Are there cracks in the “through the Catholic lens” propaganda by ICE and ACBO and Cathy Horgan and Roger Lawler?

This the promise ICE gave about materials being online. Perhaps, they are waiting for Dec 24th??

#OCSB and Whitewashing Islam – Producing Naive Canadians

The OCSB continues its whitewashing of Islam, making Canada even more naive and unprepared against violent Jihad, Sharia Law etc. Surveys show that about 1 in 10 Muslims in Canada and USA (more in the UK) support suicide bombings in some way. MacDonald Laurier Institute: 35% of Canadian Muslims would not repudiate al-Qaeda

Meanwhile, these young OCSB ladies are taken to a mosque (notice the “sisters” entrance as part of their World Religions course (you can be exempted https://catholicintelligenceblog.wordpress.com/2015/01/07/how-to-get-your-catholic-child-exempted-from-crazy-religion-courses/ )

No wonder St Joe’s parish in Ottawa allows te Adhan/Azan to be sung in the parish “I acknowledge that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah


Do they learn this about Mohammed (or that he was like Jesus?)?


Archbishop Sheehan:

Towards the close of his life he [Mohammed] showed himself to be a monster of lust, cruelty, and rapacity.  He died in 633 A.D.”


This is an EXCELLENT resource to TRULY learn about Islam:

#OCSB Yoga leading kids into Goddess Durga worship in a few years?

Pure Yoga Ottawa has just spent 3 days teaching yoga at an OCSB school. (Yoga is part of the official Ontario HPE curriculum)

These children will probably be enrolling in a few years with PYO (Pure Yoga Ottawa) classes like this: Durga Inspired Embodiment practice.

Durga is a Hindu “goddess”




St Basil’s Ottawa is de facto Anglican. and #OCSB loves St Basil’s

The OCSB has close ties with St Joe’s in Ottawa. The OCSB choirs also have close ties to St Basil’s. We always wondered why the close ties with St Basil’s. Now we know. It is defacto anglican! Their synod report is identical to what an anglican community would issue

OCSB Concert St Basil's



Archive_Family_Synod_Discussions_Report  <– PDF

  • indissolubility of marriage is “too rigid”
  • supports women priests
  • supports birth control
  • pro-homosexual acts
  • some sort of “middle ground” in abortion.

What sort of middle ground  is there for abortion? First 20 weeks only?? Cannot be gender specific? What?


This is their 2013 document for Part 1 of the Synod:



Marion Dewar, former Mayor, St Basil’s Extraordinary Eucharist minister and speaker at heretical Womens Ordination Worldwide conference in Ottawa:


Now we know a reason why the organist is:


Be very wary of the Ottawa Anglican School Board (aka OCSB)


Perhaps, the Church should deal with St Basil’s like this:


How the #OCSB could have saved $70K and used it on needy children

Instead of spending $70K at CCDAY for an expensive rah-rah session at the Shaw Centre (to be let out very early on the Friday aft of a long Thanksgiving weekend), they could used this new PD resource to study GravissimumEducationis in their schools. This is the 50th anniversary of GE.



Gravissimum Educationis Inservice <–PDF

Many of the questions would be painful for OCSB staff to truthfully answer:
• How do we teach our students to judge rightly? How in tune are their values with the values of the Catholic Church? when Catholic values conflict with elements of the modern culture on issues of life, human sexuality and marriage? when Catholic values conflict with our modern culture in areas of social justice and human dignity? How can we teach these values better?

How do we transmit the best of our Catholic cultural heritage and legacy? Do all subjects, especially literature, history, art, music, and extracurricular programs, expose students to the best in Catholic thought and to all that is true, good & beautiful?

•How aware are our students of the elements of the Catholic faith? How deeply and sincerely do our students hold and practice the truths of the Catholic faith in all of its fullness and as appropriate to their age? How well can they faithfully articulate the positions of the Catholic Church, especially on contemporary topics particularly relevant to them? How can we teach this better?

•How numerous, effective and vibrant are our retreats, devotions, opportunities for the sacrament of reconciliation, and other spiritual initiatives?
GSAs, Transgender sex ed, Wynne-Levin LGBT lesson, Secular history books, kum-ba-ya services, books like the Colour Purple, etc all FAIL in the Judgement of Vatican II.

Parents: pls take the time to read GE too and see if you are giving your children a truly Catholic education

PS: a bonus homily:

NDHS Restorative Practice Room #OCSB

While this blog support the concepts of restorative justice, the OCSB is not implementing it with Jesus Christ in mind.


Click to access restorative_practice-catholic_school-a_primer2010.pdf

And this blog also knows that the Lord helps with Restoration and Restorative practises:

Psalm 23:3 : “He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.”

Psalm 51:12  “Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.”

2 Corinthians 13:9 “For we are glad when we are weak and you are strong. Your restoration is what we pray for.”

2 Corinthians 13:11  “Finally, brothers, rejoice. Aim for restoration, comfort one another, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.”


Instead of focussing on how the Lord can help restorative justice, the OCSB goes full-core with Native symbols. Why the 7 native grandfather teachings carpet? http://www.nativereflections.com/products.php?view=4343

Is the OCSB thinking about Chinese-Canadian Catholics who are seeking restorative justice when they design the room below? Do they care about Polish-Canadian Catholics? Where is the Crucifix? Where is the Bible? Where is the Lord?

Restorative Justice 2

Restorative Justice 1

There are lots of ways to implement RP without things like native smudging:

Restorative Practices – Catholic Education Office (Australia)

Research_3 (1) <–PDF

The OCSB loves to talk about “inclusiveness”, but this room is an epic failure in that. Instead, it excluded Catholics from various nations (eg. Kenyan Catholics) and makes them use indigenous tradition to get restorative justice – hardly fair to a victim. Smashing together a restorative practices room with an indigenous room is just wrong.
OCSB remains blissfully proud:
Restorative justice echoes ancient and indigenous practices employed in cultures all over the world, from Native American and First Nation Canadian to African, Asian, Celtic, Hebrew….

Proabort Trudeau We Day recap #OCSB #ottnews

1 Good coverage by Lifesite:


2) Looks like Justin and kardinalo (the WE Day MC is started the Trudeau chant) are buddies

KardinalO and Justin (4)

Does Trudeau support his misogynist lyrics and videos?



3) official OCSB accounts of teachers, principals and superintendents were blasting out pro-Justin tweets. Small sample:

Breath of Fresh Air
Breath of Fresh Air

SEAS2 Elix Ann Seton Trudeau Trudeau Frank Ryan Trudeau1


4) Students are supposed to EARN their seats by doing good works. How did the CarletonU Liberal club get tickets? Not the social justice club, the Liberal Party club. Can We Day be any more partisan? Don’t forget that Kileburger was a MAJOR financial backer of Justin’s leadership bid (he donated the max he could legally)


6) the “neutral” Ontario Catholic parents association (the one that sits with OECTA on the ICE Board, deciding sex ed info) LOVE Justin:

OAPCE Liberal

A very sad day for “catholic” education in Ottawa

Too bad the OCSB is ignoring the Kenyan Bishops about FTC, and also even Archbishop Prendergast, who talked about picking carefully speakers for catholic students. Justin does NOT give “authentic Catholic witness” as Archbishop Prendergast demanded of speakers:


Too bad that We Day promotes the pro-abort speech by Hermione Emma Watson in classrooms and in social media:


Proabort Justin and Yogi Sophie At We Day . #ocsb #ottnews

OCSB children are being bussed to see Proabort Justin. Kielburger just announced that his buddies are speaking at we day tmrw. Demonic Worldliness at the Canadian Tire Centre.

The Kenyan bishops and many others have major issues with Free the Children :



Just last month a We Day performer was backstage droning on about US planned parenthood



Also, singing tmrw in Ottawa will be Kardinal Offishal


Check out his lyrics:


His latest video:

Or this one:


I guess the new OCSB policy is meaningless and they don’t care about parents or what Archbishop Prendergast says about guests. Demonic Worldliness!






Here’s Yogi Sophie!


Sophie: “The Sacred Feminie is on the rise”

Another failure of the “#catholic” ontario school system . #ocsb #hwcdsb

So, the new “climate change” minister, Ottawa’s Catherine McKenna is big into yoga and seems to be an atheist (she refused to say “So help me God” in her oath this week like 14/29 cabinet ministers.


She also is obviously pro-abort, pro-LGBT marriage, pro-euthanasia like the rest of Justin’s minions.

Where was she educated?? Of course, the Hamilton “catholic” school system! Great work HWCDSB! Namaste! 😉


Catherine McKenna, Canada’s new Minister of Environment and Climate Change, was born and raised in Hamilton. She’s the daughter of Dr. John McKenna, a longtime Hamilton dentist and his wife Pat McKenna, who have lived in the southwest part of the city for many years.McKenna, 44, is married and a mother of three. She attended École Notre Dame, a francophone Catholic school, and St. Mary Catholic Secondary School.

(Don’t forget that a “chaplain” of the HWCDSB is now a Liberal pro-abort MP)

To this sad example of a Cabinet minister and the failure of the HW”C”DSB, we sing the National Anthem (with all its references to the Lord)

O Canada! Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide, O Canada,
We stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land, glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee;
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada! Where pines and maples grow,
Great prairies spread and Lordly rivers flow!
How dear to us thy broad domain,
From East to Western sea!
The land of hope for all who toil,
The true North strong and free!
God keep our land, glorious and free.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!

O Canada! Beneath thy shining skies,
May Stalwart sons, and gentle maidens rise.
To keep thee steadfast thro’ the years,
From East to Western sea.
Our own beloved native land,
Our true North strong and free!
God keep our land, glorious and free.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!

Ruler supreme, who hearest humble prayer,
Hold our Dominion, in thy loving care.
Help us to find, O God, in thee,
A lasting rich reward.
As waiting for the better day,
We ever stand on guard.
God keep our land, glorious and free.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!

(H/T from a Holy priest: Note also the fourth verse in French, which is even stronger: it speaks explicitly of “Sacred love of throne and of altar” and of our nation’s battle cry: “For Christ and for the King

WE Day/ Free the Children big supporters of Emma Watson’s pro abortion Speech #OCSB #TCOT

We Day in Ottawa is next week (Nov 10). Despite the OCSB empty promise that Catholic and social and moral teaching” will direct partnerships”, OCSB continues sending young children to hear speakers at We Day

This move also opposes Archbishop Prendergast’s statement:

““Guests and partners must give an authentic Catholic witness that will inspire and encourage, not a counter-witness that will discourage and confuse,” he added. “No matter how great their achievements in politics, business, sports, science, or the arts, we should not invite to our schools as guest speakers, or give awards to, those who provide a counter-witness to the Gospel.”


It also ignores the demands of Kenyan Bishops to stop supporting FTC/We Day. One can only speculate on the reasons that the OCSB is ignoring African bishops.



WE Day are huge fans of Emma Watson and her UN speech. Emma was hermione in Harry Potter and is very popular. She is also a Goodwill Ambassador for Pro-abort “UN Women”.

And they think she is a great role model for girls ! Look at the number ofLikes, Retweets, Shares  of We Day tweet and FB post. etc etc,, Thousands. We Day leads thousands of children off course.

Her speech was very pro-abortion.


Emma: Pro-abortion euphemism:
“I think it is right that I should be able to make decisions about my own body”. –

also very support for Hillary’s Beijing pro-abort speech:

Hillary Clinton Speech:

We Day: “To be fair, there were small victories, inspiring moments, and tiny steps forward to celebrate in 2014. Emma Watson’s#HeforShe speech at the United Nations was a powerful rallying cry for men to join the fight for women’s equality.”




We Day is now pushing Emma and her pro-abort speech in LEARNING materials to ELEMENTARY students!

Here are the TRUE Catholic Church teachings about killing human embryos:


#OCSB staff are setting a VERY poor example for the children

PS: How do #OCSB staff feel about 14/29 of theTrudeau cabinet refused to say “So Help me God” during the swearing in yesterday? Throwing your lot in with a bunch of atheists?

Ten months after his father’s funeral, Trudeau headlined at the 2001 lead-up to World Youth Day, where the Vancouver-based high school teacher urged the youth to reject “old men with old ideas.”

Thereafter Trudeau popped up at countless Catholic events including numerous appearances at Catholic schools. Lay Catholic lawyer Geoff Cauchi said it was nothing short of “scandalous, that for years Catholic schools would invite him in to give talks” and to “encourage Catholic students to ignore their faith.”

Moreover, the Ottawa Citizen revealed in 2013 that five Catholic school boards, OECTA and the Ontario Catholic Trustees Association had paid the rising political star a total of $82,500 for speaking engagements between 2006 and 2010.”

Tavi is Editor of Rookie Mag.

One website describes the magazine as this:

“RookieMag.com, and provide a live link for her “website for teenage girls.” RookieMag.com contains extensive and explicit sexual content, promotes abortion rights, and includes multiple articles that specifically ridicule or dismiss Catholic teachings/beliefs. “

Here is an article where the OCSTA proudly talks about a student who was inspired to volunteer with Planned Parenthood!

We will write more about this. but don`t forget the Kileburgers have written their support for Planned Parenthood. As well, the Kenyan Bishops have asked Canadian Catholics to dissociate themselves from FTC and We Day!

Kielburgers in their `mothers day manifesto`

“And as women in developing countries fight for reproductive rights, our now Conservative majority government is poised to cut fundingto International Planned Parenthood, an organization that provides reproductive health services abroad. It’s a paternalistic refusal tooffer women in Africa the same rights offered to women in Canada.“
