Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

I would like to introduce myself to you as the new, proud principal of Bayshore P.S.

I started in this position on February 4th. The staff and students have done a great job welcoming me and I am beginning to see what a caring and special place is Bayshore P.S! I have had the privilege of meeting some of you throughout the week and look forward to meeting more parents and family members as we work together to support the students and staff at Bayshore P.S.

I am in my 22nd year in education; I started my career in North York Board of Education, then continued with Toronto District School Board.  In 1999 I moved back to Ottawa to be closer to family and I have worked in the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board for the last 19 years. I have worked in numerous schools throughout the district in various teaching roles, as well as in professional development for teachers.

 I have spent the last five years in administration as a vice-principal at Alta Vista P.S., Steve MacLean P.S. and lastly at W.E Gowling P.S. I am excited to learn about the community, the school and discover how I can serve the students and families to the best of my abilities.

I am a strong believer in the power of education. In the words of Nelson Mandela, “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.”  As an educator I have always seen my role twofold: teaching students how to learn and helping each student become a positive contributor to our society.

Educating children is a shared responsibility amongst all adults who are in the sphere of influence of each child.  I look forward to working with you to ensure that each student at Bayshore P.S. is receiving the best educational experience possible.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me at the school if you have any questions or concerns. I would be happy to meet with you: (613) 829 - 8698.

Yours truly,


May Tannous

Principal, Bayshore P.S
