  • promoting effective communication between the school and parents
  • supporting our schools short and long term goals
  • contributing ideas around school code of conduct/behaviour
  • encouraging parent and community involvement in our school
  • promoting positive attitudes towards public education
  • supporting initiatives that affect student achievement or board accountability to parents

The membership of our council includes:

  • parents—who form the majority of council members
  • teaching and support staff representatives
  • community members
