School councils are an excellent way for you to get involved in your child’s education. A school council is an important forum for involving all members of the school community in matters that affect the education of our students. Our school Council is proud to have a Home and School Association, where we both can enjoy a co-existence, complimenting the role of both groups have in supporting student success, achievement, and well-being of our children here at Prince of Wales!
Our school council is made up of an elected committee of parents, staff, appointed community members, the principal, and a general membership which includes all parents of children attending the school. The school council advises the principal and the Board on a variety of issues and activities relating to student achievement, curriculum goals and priorities, school budget priorities, school safety, renovation plans, after school activities, fundraising, ect…
Role of a School Council:
School councils have a legislated role at their schools and are there to ensure the best possible education for students. Our school council is comprised of democratically elected representatives of our parent community. Together, they:
- focus on student learning and the best interest of all students,
- provide a forum through which parents and other members of school communities can contribute to improving student achievement and school performance,
- make recommendations to the school principal and the Board on any matter they see impacting accountability and academic excellence and;
- serve as a communication and information channel between the school and community.
