School Council

FHCI School Council

Our School Council plays a vital role. It provides a forum through which parents can contribute to improving student achievement, school performance and accountability, as well as overall school life. Parental involvement in a child’s education has been shown to have a significant effect on his or her success. The partnership of school and parent representatives on a School Council helps to foster mutual understanding and positive interactions between a school and its community. Everyone wins! Personal advantages of becoming involved on our School Council are: being an important partner and advocate with respect to your child’s education; having a vehicle through which to express opinions and recommendations; being in the know and finding out what is happening at FHCI as well as at the ward, TDSB, and provincial levels with respect to education; experiencing camaraderie with other parents; fundraising for equipment  to enrich student life; hearing the Principal’s and teacher rep’s reports; and having opportunities to dialogue with both our Principal, and Teacher Rep; and becoming comfortable with FHCI.

Flip Give

Have you started your holiday shopping yet? Do you like to shop online? 

This year we want to make our fundraising efforts for FHCI a lot easier by using a service called FlipGive. With FlipGive we shop online with popular brands like Walmart, Apple, Under Armour or buy gift cards
to restaurants and our team will earn cash!

Join our team now using our invite code 2GFKE5 in one of 2 ways:

  1. Download the FlipGive app at
  2. Join online at

Remember to use FlipGive before you shop online so we'll earn cash back. If you make a purchase in the next 7 days we'll receive a $5 bonus!
