School Council Members


This volunteer advisory body is bringing together parish, parents, teacher, business and other community members. Together, they come to consensus on matters pertaining to the education of students. Thanks to the various fundraising activities, the council has provided the students with extra activities such as hot lunches, trips, plays, technology,  outdoor play equipment, support for sacramental celebrations and school awards. Elections are held early in September for the following positions: Chairperson, Co-Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer, Catholic School Council Parent Association Rep, and Parent Council Members.
