Every school has a school council—a group focused on helping all students succeed. School councils have an advisory role. They help to provide the community voice and parent perspective on important school topics.
Come and join us on the first Tuesday of every month in the library at 6:30pm.
Why join school council?
Serving on school council is a way to have a d irect and positive impact on your child's educational experience. Research shows that when parents are involved in their child's education, the level of student achievement increases.
How do I get involved?
School council meetings are open to the public, so anyone can attend meetings without being an elected or voting member. Our school council elections will take place at this year's first meeting on October 3, 2017 in the library. You can always check back here for updates to our meetings agendas and minutes.
For more information about joining school council, speak to your principal or a current school council member.
Boost your school council's effectiveness
School council members are elected to represent the school community. School council isn't the location to address individual concerns. School councils discuss broader topics, like the School Learning Plan, new programs or initiatives, student well-being, student achievement, and school-wide fundraising activities.
