Catholic 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

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.

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 2016 - 2017 school year are:
