School Council

Every school has a school council—a group focused on helping all students succeed.

School councils are groups of parents, community representatives, teaching and non-teaching employees, students and the school principal. Through the active participation of parents, school councils work to improve student achievement and enhance the accountability of the education system to parents.

Support for school councils is provided by the Simcoe County District School Board’s Parent Involvement Committee.

Why join us on school council?

Involvement in school council is a meaningful, hands-on way to have a direct, positive impact on your child’s educational experience. Research shows that when parents are involved in their child’s education, the level of student achievement increases.

Our first school council meeting was a success. We are pleased to have a new council voted in for the 2020-21 school year.
Our School Council Members are as follows:

Chair – Nicolle Lafortune
Vice-Chair – Christina Knox
Community Reps – Jane Lee and Rebecca Taylor
Voting Members – Jerdelle Pilger, Kathy Morgan, Julie Kelsey, Stephanie Ormsby
Teacher Rep – Amy Sweet
