Catholic School Council

Two parent volunteers talking.

The St. Thomas Aquinas 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 uniform sales, and support of school sponsored initiatives.

Meeting Dates

Our Catholic School Council meetings take place once a month in the school library beginning at 5:00 p.m. All parents are welcome to attend the monthly Council meetings and bring agenda items forward for discussion. The meeting dates for the current school year are:
