School Council

posted in: Home Page News | 0


The Grandview Public School Council works to improve our school. The Council provides advice and feedback to the school
principal, organizes special events and assists in raising funds for the students and the school.  Council nominations will be held on September 19th at 9:30 a.m., in our school staffroom.  At this meeting we will conduct the election of this year’s School Council Executive: Chair, Co-Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. All parents are welcome.

Mission Statement

“The Grandview School Council will work collaboratively to enhance the educational experience of all students by providing an accessible & welcoming forum.  We will seek advice, share information, identify, & discuss issues that affect the school community.  The Council will promote & encourage communication between home, school and community to enable families to actively share responsibility for their children’s education.”

The Role & Functions of the School Council

The School Council is an advisory body of volunteers who work together to provide ideas and opinions to help the principal and sometimes the school board make the school a better place for learning.  The School Council should represent the diversity of the school community, which includes the parents and guardians of the children in the school and other people who live or work in the school’s attendance area.  It gives the community opportunities to discuss educational issues and respond to local educational needs by providing information for parents and community members, getting feedback from them, and presenting their views to the school and school board.  In its role as a link between the school and the community, the School Council has two very important functions:

  • To establish and maintain good communication among the school, parents and community.
  • To encourage parents and community members to participate in education.

2018-2019 has been an awesome year!  We have achieved so much!  We were able to meet our goals of purchasing sensory items, musical instruments, sponsoring grade level events/trips, Scientist in School, gym equipment such as shuffle board, curling kit, adventure course, beam balance, soccer goals, outdoor recess toys, trees, pavement painting as well as our continued support of our classroom and school libraries!

Grandview School Council would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents, students and staff of Grandview for such a great year!  Without your help and support we would not be able to accomplish our goals in the school.  We truly appreciate everything that you do!  You make Grandview a great place to go to school.
