School Council Message

Our Sir John A. Macdonald School Council includes parents/guardians, students, and school staff. There are five elected positions on the council.

The aims and objectives of the School Council are:

  • to establish friendly liaison between parents and teachers regarding matters of mutual concern.
  • To establish committees for fund raising, teacher assistance and any other program which was deemed necessary
  • to investigate educational policy both at civic and provincial levels.

All parents/guardians are encouraged to attend school council meetings. Meeting times are Tuesday nights, typically the third Tuesday of each month, from 6:00 pmto 7:30 pm and includes a pizza dinner. Reminders and updates/changes will be posted in our school newsletters and monthly calendars.
