School Advisory Council

School councils are an excellent way for parents to get involved in their child`s education. Our school has an elected school council that is an important forum for involving all members of the school community in issues that affect the education of students. The school council is made up of an elected committee of parents, and staff representatives, appointed community members, the principal, and a general membership which includes all parents of children attending the school. The school 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, and criteria for selection of new principals.


The West Prep SAC, is a group of parents who help support our school and students through various activities, such as fundraising (to enhance student life – currently we are working on a playground improvement project), school wide events (such as bingo night, movie nights & fun fair), after-school programs and lunch programs such as pizza and subway lunch. We also provide advice and recommendations to the school’s administration and work directly with our trustees on various projects.

We regularly distribute various communications to keep families informed of upcoming school events both by email and letters distributed in class to students.
