Catholic School Council

school alter

The St. Francis de Sales Catholic School Council is an advisory group made up of parents and staff. The council is a vital part of our school community. The purpose of a Catholic School Council, through the active participation of parents, is to improve pupil achievement and to enhance the accountability of the education process to parents.

Our Catholic School Council provides advice and support to the principal, and where appropriate, to senior administrative staff and the Board of Trustees on education matters. The advice should reflect the views of the school community.

Our Contributions

Over the years, our Catholic School Council has been involved in many activities, including fundraising events such as milk days and dance-athons and support of school sponsored initiatives.

Meeting Dates

Our Catholic School Council meetings take place in the school library from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. All parents are welcome to attend the monthly Council meetings and bring agenda items forward for discussion. Contact our Catholic School Council by email at Our meeting dates for 2016/17 school year are:
