Welcome to O'Connell Drive Elementary School in Porter's Lake, Nova Scotia. Our school serves students and families from the communities of Porter's Lake and Lake Echo. We opened in September of 1997 to 440 students as the first P3 school in our province. We were among the first to experience a technologically rich learning environment. Our classrooms are equipped with LCD projectors, computers and our students have access to the latest software to enhance their learning experiences. Today, we have an enrollment of approximately 350 students. Our staff is dedicated to taking any measures necessary to improve student achievement.
Have a great summer!
Late Registration Day is August 26th - 9AM-4PM
Cafeteria Closed - Please note that the last day of cafeteria service for the 2013-14 school year was Friday, June 20, 2014. We will reopen it again in the fall.
Primary Registration - If you haven't registered your child yet please do so by picking up a package in the main office. See below (New Students) for the required documentation.
Please remember to use our drop-off zone between 7:35AM and 7:55AM if your child misses the bus and you need to drive him or her to school. Students will be considered late if they arrive after 7:55AM and thus family members should bring them to the main office to report in and obtain late slips.
