Catholic Parent School Council

exterior of high school

The Archbishop Denis O'Connor Catholic High School Council is an advisory group made up of parents and staff. The council is a vital part of our school community. The purpose of a Catholic School Council, through the active participation of parents, is to improve pupil achievement and to enhance the accountability of the education process to parents.

Our Catholic School Council provides advice and support to the principal, and where appropriate, to senior administrative staff and the Board of Trustees on education matters. The advice should reflect the views of the school community.

Our Contributions & Fundraising

Over the years, our Catholic School Council has been involved in many activities, including fundraising events such as uniform sales, and support of school sponsored initiatives such as mental health events.  This year our major fundraiser is "Flip Give".We earn “CASHBACK” every time someone shops at over 400 merchants available on the site, examples are, Walmart, Nike, Under Armour, Sport Chek, Old Navy. Online shopping, eGift Cards and donations. An email was sent home with the details and the link to sign up please click on the FlipGive link Each merchant provides a different percentage on the purchases you make that is then given to the DO’C team. If you make a purchase, in the first 7 days – our team will receive an automatic $5. Imagine $5 from each family at DO’C would soon add up and be used towards new sports equipment, school teams and clubs etc.

Meeting Dates

Our Catholic School Council meetings take place in the school library from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month (except for December and March). All parents are welcome to attend the monthly Council meetings and bring agenda items forward for discussion. The meeting dates for the 2018 - 2019 school year are:
