Principal's Message

Welcome to Cadarackque Public School!

Bienvenue à l’école publique Cadarackque!

Cadarackque is truly a special place to learn with a unique student population that pulls from several schools in Ajax. Diversity is our strength as we draw upon the different perspectives of communities represented in the population to create an environment that is inclusive and accepting of differences.

As a dual-track school, Caddy offers students the opportunity to experience the many benefits of learning a second language, through our Core French and French Immersion programs. We are proud to say “Ici on parle en français!”

The staff at Cadarackque are proud to serve the needs of the community and are fully committed to providing a rich educational experience for every child. We are committed to providing learning opportunities in and outside the classroom to enrich the school experience. Establishing high academic standards, using innovative teaching practices and incorporating real-world applications into programming will better prepare Cadarackque students for a changing society. 

The goal for every Cadarackque student is to be responsible 21st century global citizens and contributing members of society. Our students are not only taught the need to be competent users of technology but they are challenged to think critically, consider different perspectives and that their voice matters.

Cadarackque students have a rich history of producing graduates who have gone on to achieve success. The current students will undoubtedly continue in the same tradition established by those before them displaying their Caddy pride, respect and strength of character.

We look forward to strengthening the relationship with the community as Cadarackque PS students continue to “Soar Above and Beyond for Excellence”.

À bientôt!
