School Council Operating Procedures

School Council 1 Year Plan (example of previous years)

Friends of School Council

PACE (Parents Action Committee for Education)

  • A Non-Profit Society which accesses funds generated by casinos and chooses to donate those funds to the school (school councils' can't do casinos, so a non-profit is created to run it on behalf of the school councils). This is the only work PACE does.
  • Approx every 3 years PACE is commissioned to fill area casino volunteer positions for a 2 day time frame.   We earn a portion of the casino’s earnings during that time.

Our last casino was in December of 2019 and we received approximately $43,000 !

2022: Stay tuned for our upcoming casino dates in either July, August, or September of 2023. We will have more information soon and a link to Sign Up Genius HERE for volunteers when the time comes.

STUDENT CARE COMMITTEE

Donation Program
Did you know that when our school helps a student in need fund a field trip or buy winter boots this money comes out of the school budget? Now parents can help purchase these items for our students by making a donation to the Student Care Committee via school cash online.

• Donations will be used to meet material needs of all students and to ensure everyone can participate in school culture activities
• Funds raised will be allocated by school administration and our Child Development advisor Kerry Butler
• How donated funds were used will be reported in December and June school newsletters
• If the donation line disappears from school cash online it means we have received enough money for the time being. It will reappear when it is needed again.
• More money will stay in the school budget – a win-win for everyone!

In the 2018/2019 school year donations were spent to cover school
fees, provide field trips, purchase fruit for the school fruit bowl and to
lend a hand to families in need.
