School Council

The School Council exists as a forum for parents, students, teachers and community members to provide input, in an advisory capacity, to the administration of the school. Council also initiates or contributes to projects to enhance the school. Council members meet regularly to discuss and address issues in the school or in education across the province. All members of the school community are encouraged to attend meetings to provide valuable input.
