About Our School

W.E. Gowling Public School was named after Wesley Ernest Gowling, a dedicated trustee of the Ottawa Public School Board from 1909-1955. Originally built in 1946, it went through an expansion in 1949 and then an addition in 1952. In 2022, W.E. Gowling celebrated its 75th anniversary. Our academic focus is on Literacy and Numeracy. Our positive school discipline philosophy emphasizes respect and responsibility which supports our educational programs.
