The School Council is the organization where parents communicate and exchange ideas with each other, teachers and school management on a large variety of issues such as:
- Student policies and procedures( (i.e) lates, discipline, dress code, etc.
- School programs (i.e. Science Fair, Concerts), curriculum adaptions
- Computer technology
- Field trips, extra-curricular programs
- Fundraisers, special events, etc
The School council does not do 'Site Based Management', but in effect is an advisory drawing board where all parties involved in our school can express their preferences as to what direction to take on the above and/or many other issues. Parents 'make' the meetings: any concerns regarding the well-being of our students can be presented, discussed and hopefully solved.

NS Parent Council Lending Library
The NS Parent Council received a grant in 2021/22 to purchase parent resources. Parent Council funded a parent presentation and chose to spend the remaining funds on books for a Parent Lending Library. There are 8 books available to be loaned out from the school office. You are able to come in and sign them out or send an email to Jeanine.firstname.lastname@example.org and they can be sent home with your child.
