Main projects

Lycée Claudel encourages students to be dynamic and entrepreneurial by getting involved in different projects according to their personal interests to improve school life.

Peer Mediation Program

The peer mediation program allows students to develop sound conflict management methods. Students who wish to get involved receive mediation training that will allow them to accompany their peers as mediators in the event of disagreements or conflicts. It has been shown that some students are more open to mediation when it is offered by a person of the same age.


  • Give students tools so that conflicts are not dealt with by confrontation or even violence, but can rather be put into words
  • Encourage students to get involved in conflict resolution
  • Empower students in the sound management of their conflicts
  • Contribute to the improvement of the social climate

Mediator students

There are two mediator students in each class from CP to 3rd grade. Their role is to ensure the smooth running of a mediation meeting between parties in conflict. He invites his peers to communicate and finds a solution to the problems they face.

Mediation is never imposed. It takes place only if students in conflict request it or if they accept the proposal to meet a mediator.

What is CVCL ?

The Council for secondary school life (CVCL) is an advisory body composed of elected students (college and high school), staff members (teachers, supervisors, administrative staff), and chaired by the Head of School.

Above all, it is a place for debate, exchange and listening where student representatives are given the opportunity to speak in order to stimulate a new dynamic, new projects, and to encourage better consideration of issues affecting students’ living conditions within the school.

The CVCL must be consulted:

  • on questiobns relating to the general principles of the organization of studies, the organization of school time and the elaboration of the school project as well as the elaboration or modification of the internal regulations;
  • on the general procedures for organizing personal work and supporting students;
  • on health, hygiene and safety, the layout of spaces intended for students’ lives;
  • on the organisation of sporting, cultural and extracurricular activities.

Health centre

For Lycée Claudel, student health is a priority.

  • The health area is located on the ground floor of the secondary wing.
  • It is open from Monday to Friday, from 09h45 to 15h30
  • It is open to all students, from kindergarten to high school.


The health area has several objectives that are essential to life in high school:

  • Provide first aid and proper emergency measures
  • Listen, advise, reassure and inform students, in complete confidentiality
  • Ensure personal monitoring of students’ health, in collaboration with parents and school staff
  • Organize vaccination campaigns planned by Ottawa Public Health
  • Recognize, intervene and report cases of children at risk
  • Participate in the integration of students with disabilities
  • Acting in the event of a communicable disease
  • Encourage health education

In case of an emergency at school

  • The student is immediately accompanied to the health area by a classmate or a personal member
  • Implementation of the “Guidelines for Schools and Childcare Facilities on Communicable Diseases and Other Health Problems in Children”
  • Call the parents if necessary


In the event of a more serious accident, the same measures apply in addition to the emergency protocol.

Important note

Allergies: Implementation of the recommendations of the Sabrina law at the beginning of each school year.

Asthma: Implementation of the recommendations of the Ryan Act at the beginning of each school year.

A written authorization signed by the parents and a medical prescription are required to authorize any medical treatment that must be taken at school. The health space asks parents of students with symptoms of illness to act responsibly and not to send their child to school on that day. This measure is used in particular to limit the risk of contamination.
