School Council

School Council is a vital part of a healthy school community. The School Council serves an advisory role, working together with staff members to support student achievement and well-being. The school council liaises through the school principal and is an important link between parents and the school community. Some of the key duties of a school council include: 

• Building a sense of community through: 
• Organizing extra-curricular activities in the school 
• Coordinating school-based services and community partnerships
• Enhancing the home–school relationship through: 
• Establishing school–community communication strategies 
• Developing methods of reporting to parents/guardians and the community Providing advice and Comments on areas such as: 
• The school-year calendar 
• The school code of student conduct
• The school budget priorities

While some members of School Council assume active roles on committees, we invite everyone to attend to participate in discussions that will directly impact your children.

Parental involvement is one of the most significant factors contributing to a child’s success in school. When parents are involved in their children’s education, the level of student achievement increases. Students attend school more regularly, they complete more homework in a consistent manner, and demonstrate more positive attitudes towards school. They are also more likely to complete high school.
