School Council is a structured group that works together to effectively support and enhance student learning. It provides a means for members of a school community to consult with and provide advice to the principal and the school board. Parents are encouraged to become involved in their School Council. Opportunity for election is early in the school year. In addition to the executive, a variety of parents, community members, and school staff members participate.
Parent participation in the Our Lady of Mount Carmel School Council develops a wider exposure to District business that can be mutually beneficial to the board, the school, and the community.
The School Council does not discuss issues concerning individual students or staff. These should be addressed with the teacher involved and failing that it should be addressed with the principal at a private meeting.
The school also has an incorporated society (under the Societies Act) called the Our Lady of Mount Carmel School Fundraising Society that raises funds for the school. From time to time it holds fundraising events for the benefit of the students and the school.
