welcome to our tamil school
Ottawa Tamil Academy of Culture and Technology (OTACT), is the place where your child will learn Tamil Language and Culture in a friendly and social atmosphere.   Our school was established in 1996 and continues to be the Premier Language and Cultural Learning Centre for Tamil Speaking Children in the Nation's Capital, Ottawa, Canada.   The main focus in our school is on character building followed by teaching of various skills to help our children achieve their goals in our multicultural Canada.   We believe that our Tamil children's goals in life could only be achieved if it is started at the early stage. Instructions at OTACT are given through the medium of mother tongue, Tamil.   Our past experience shows that our Tamil Children must have a sound educational basis in their mother tongue, Tamil, so that they can master in either English or any other Languages and chosen Studies at an advanced level. OTACT now has on its roll about 120 students with sixteen Trained Teachers, Boad of Directors, two Administrative Staffs, and tireless many Volunteers.   We now have classes from Ilamalali (Junior Kindergarden), Muthumalali (Senior Kindergarden) and up to Grade 8.   We have got excellent recognitions and overwelming supports from theTamil People of the Greater Ottawa Region for the past many years of our exsistence.   Our students are taught Thirukkural, Bharathiyar Poems, Tamil Rhymes, Moral Stories, Bharata Natya and Miruthangam.
