Parent Council

Parent Council - Overview

Parent councils are an excellent way for parents to get involved in their child’s education. The parent council advises the principal on a variety of issues and activities relating to student achievement, curriculum goals and priorities, school budget priorities, school safety, renovation plans, after school activities.

Earl Grey is fortunate to have an active Parent Council with many parent members from our school community.  All Earl Grey parents and guardians are welcome to attend. Some parents stay on the Council for a few years, but each year members move on. We want to ensure our Council remains vibrant and representative of our school population so new parent members are always welcome and encouraged to join.

Earl Grey is looking for parent / guardian volunteers for school council. This is an excellent way for parents / guardians to get involved in their child’s education. The school council acts as an advisory body that makes recommendations to the Principal or to the School Board on matters relevant to student success. We consult with parents/guardians to maintain a school-wide perspective on issues and we aim to represent and communicate the views of our school community.

All Earl Grey parents / guardians are encouraged to join. You can nominate yourself for an elected position or simply indicate your wish to volunteer your time, skills and connections, as and when you can. No prior experience is needed, but if you do have prior experience it will be helpful. We want to ensure our council remains vibrant and representative of our school population so new parent members are always welcome and encouraged to join. Representation matters!

One way to help is to attend school council meetings and share your ideas. Everyone is welcome to attend a council meeting if their schedule permits. Council appreciates all voices and ideas, and we strive for consensus when making decisions that affect our community. It is not necessary to be an official voting member of council to share your voice, but on occasion, a vote is necessary. If you feel you can attend meetings regularly, we encourage you to sign up to be a voting member of council. Please note that if you feel you cannot commit to regular attendance right now, you are welcome to become a voting member at any time during the school year.
