From answering questions, to connecting you with other parents, to representing the interests of families, Bowmore School Council helps you get the most out of the Bowmore community.
This year will look different than the last. With a number of limitations and restrictions on what we can and cannot do. This year our priorities are advocating for our kids and families; learning about equality & discrimination, and finding new ways of supporting one another.
What does the School Council do?
School Council advises the school administration on a variety of issues and activities relating to student achievement, equity (including anti-oppression and anti-racism work), student mental health and well-being, school improvement goals, school budget priorities, school safety, renovation plans, after school
The purpose of the School Council is to facilitate engagement between families and administration, giving families a voice in decisions that are made that impact their child(ren)’s education. School Council advises the school administration on a variety of issues and activities relating to student achievement, equity (including anti-oppression and anti-racism work), student mental health and well-being, school improvement goals, school budget priorities, school safety, renovation plans, after school activities, and criteria for the selection of new principals. Regardless of whether your child(ren) attends in-school learning or remote learning, council meetings are a great way for you to learn more about what is happening at your child(ren)’s school, a chance to ask the Principal questions, and a time to share your ideas at the table.
We want to be intentional about increasing diversity on our School Council. All voices are important to be heard and represented at Bowmore. Working to address systemic barriers and build equity is important to Bowmore and we can’t do it without everyone at the table.
We hope you will join us during the school year as a classroom representative, member of Council or a participant in the work of the School Council to continue to ensure Bowmore is a “wonderful place to learn”.
