Council elections. All Bowmore students should have brought home a school council flyer and self-nomination form for the upcoming School council election. If anyone has questions about any of the roles please feel free to email us at bowmoresc@gmail.com and we’d be happy to give you more info either over the phone or email. We have a number of members stepping down from their roles this year, many of whom have been on council for 2-5 years. In order for us to continue with a school council this school year we need 1-2 people to take on the co-chair role(s), among others. Reach out with questions!

The Terry Fox School Run is this Thursday Sept 26 and Bowmore Public School is approaching the finish line. Please help us reach our goal of $ 5000.00. Donate at: http://www.terryfox.ca/BowmorePSToronto. We are so proud to be carrying on this incredible Canadian tradition at our school. #terryfoxliveshere Terry is our hero… if we reach our goal we will have a school wide Super Hero day on Oct. 23rd! We are proud to share with you that Bowmore Public School has raised $130 online!
