Catholic School Council

The St. Christopher 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.

Meeting Dates

Our Catholic School Council meetings take place in the school library from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on select Tuesdays each month.

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 posted to the EDSBY calendar feed.
