The Jean Vanier Catholic School Council is made up of parents/guardians, school staff, and administration. We gather regularly throughout the school year in the staff room, to meet other families, learn about school operations, and discuss school issues and efforts to benefit students. It's a great opportunity to become more involved in your child's education.
Catholic School Councils give parents, staff and other community partners the opportunity to have a positive influence on our Catholic identity, student achievement and school climate. Catholic School Councils engage in valued discussions in an advisory capacity with the principal and school board, in support of their children’s education.
Catholic School Councils are comprised of a dedicated team of parent representatives, a teacher, non-teaching staff member, a community representative, a Parish representative and the principal. In keeping with the document, School Councils - A Guide for Members, elections for the Council Executive are held at the beginning of the school year beginning with nomination forms sent to all families, followed by an election. All meetings are open to all parents.
As a Catholic School Council member, you can help your council discover new and exciting ways to contribute to the growth and improvement of your school. Please consider attending a council meeting or becoming a part of this year's council and making a positive impact on your child's education. Your participation can make a difference!
Can't make it to monthly meetings? You can support our School Council in other ways!
Just an hour or two of your time can make a tremendous difference in our efforts. We need volunteers to assist in supporting school events. If you are interested in supporting our Catholic School Council in this way, please leave your name, phone number, and email at the school office and our school chair, Mr. Phill Stone will contact you. Thank you!
