Catholic School Council

The St. Monica 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 are face to face hosted in the learning commons. For any parents that cannot make it to the meetings, we also will offer a zoom link.  The school will send out a request for the zoom link prior to each meeting. All parents are welcome to attend the Council meetings. The meeting dates for the 2022-2023 school year are:
