“It takes a village to raise a child.” We have all heard this proverb by now, the basic essence of it is that a child upbringing is a communal effort. The responsibility for raising a child is usually shared, while some have larger families, others are blessed with good friends and neighbours, the community. Our children are a blessing from God for the whole community. We should make every effort, even if it is small and only an idea to try and help raise and take care of our children as this is a communal responsibility. We are all God’s children.
The school council is a great way for parents to become involved in their children’s education. A strong vibrant School Council is an important part of the School community and new members are constantly needed to replace current members whose children have graduated.
When parents are involved in their children’s education, the level of student’s achievement is bound to increase. Students attend school more regularly; they complete more homework in a consistent manner and demonstrate more positive attitudes towards school. We are able to make recommendations to the principal and the school board on matters that concern the school and the children.
We invite you to support your children, your community and your school by becoming a member and/or attending our meetings. You simply come and listen to what we have to share, give your opinion on issues, or simply share your concerns. We generally meet on the last Thursday of the month during the school calendar year, see the website for our meeting dates.
