You may not be aware but St. Pius X has now become the largest English as a Second Language High School in the Ottawa Catholic School Board.  Just over 12% of our students are involved in this program.  Besides the teachers who support the students we have a Multicultural Liaison Officer (MLO) who works with the newcomer students and their families to help them settle into life in Ottawa and at St. Pius X.  There is lots for them to learn very rapidly if they are going to be integrate into Canadian society.  We welcome Maria Camacho as our new MLO.  We had been very well served by Halimah Shaw who has moved onto working with some other schools (although she may be helping us out as needed).  Maria has worked in the system for many years, most recently serving students at Notre Dame H.S.  Welcome Maria!  We appreciate having you as part of our community and supporting our students.  She can be reached at: 613-225-8105, #247 or 613-513-4621 or by e-mail at: maria.camacho@ocsb.ca
