Each year, the class presidents are elected by the members of the student body. They encourage open communication by representing their class when speaking to teachers and college administration, as well as by cooperatively announcing important College information to their classmates. They are consulted during regular meetings about various aspects of student life and must accordingly prepare a report at the end of each school year with the purpose of sharing comments and suggestions. Additionally, class presidents help to organize social events and promote a strong collegial spirit. They also play an important role in welcoming new and returning students.
Numerous social activities are organized for students throughout the year. Active involvement in these events is strongly encouraged. These activities give students the opportunity to develop leadership skills, social consciousness and teamwork while also helping to create strong social networks and a feeling of unity within the college. Extra-curricular activities serve to round out students’ otherwise academic school experience, and include the following:
- Welcome Day (Beach Day)
- Multicultural Day
- Monthly ‘theme’ events (Halloween, Valentine’s Day, Western Day, Sugar Shack, etc.)
- Clubs and committees (Environmental, Health, First Aid and Security, Travel, EchO’Sullivan Newsletter, etc.)
- Charity drives
Also, much attention is given to the promotion of healthy, active living through awareness campaigns and by encouraging students’ participation in our sports teams.
O’Sullivan students have five computer labs at their disposal equipped with the most recent Microsoft technology, including one lab equipped with Mac computers. These computer labs are also available to students who wish to use them outside of class hours. Internet access is available through our WIFI network and our four mobile computer labs.
Library materials are carefully selected to provide support for the College curriculum as well as to enrich students' reading opportunities. The library collection also includes a wide variety of audio tapes and video programs for the use of faculty and students. Students also receive instruction in library research techniques. Furthermore, the library computer centre is an ideal place to do research.
The library includes a computer lab where 20 computer workstations are available for student use during the library’s opening hours. There are also 16 laptop computers for student use. The library is open from 8:00 a.m. to 6 p.m. (except on Friday, the library closes at 5 p.m.)
The Learning Center

The centre offers personalized service to students by providing individual meetings with a tutor or peer tutoring.
This one-on-one assistance service offered by a specialized counselor aims to help students deal with personal difficulties. Furthermore, it also provides them the support and encouragement to establish a successful plan, reach their academic objectives, and develop their skills.
