School Councils were formed to support the school and provide the opportunity to advise the principal and school board on any matters relating to the school and education. Our School Council is made up of parents, staff, students and community members. We are a fairly informal group who meet once a month to discuss school issues.
At every meeting, members have the opportunity to hear reports from the school administration, student representative, and committee of school councils' representative as well as a report from the school board trustee assigned to our school. Participation is encouraged and there is usually lively discussion on a wide range of topics.
There isn't any fundraising done by our School Council! According to the School Council Regulation we are to be given the opportunity to provide advice on the development of the school's mission, vision, and philosophy; policies; annual education plan; annual results report and the budget.
Meeting Dates for 2019-2020
Meetings are held in the upstairs Learning Commons (Library) starting at 6:30 pm. Regular attendance isn't required. Please check out our school calendar and weekly Falcons View for scheduled School Council Meetings.
NOTE: Dates are tentative and can change if the Chairperson and the Principal determine that it is necessary for the meeting date to be changed.
