Welcome to our SAOP School Council Page
Thank you for your interest in strengthening the home-school partnership.
The St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School Council is established for the purposes of developing, encouraging and promoting activities that will enhance the quality of school programs and improve levels of student achievement. The School Council provides advice to the Principal and where appropriate, to the School Board on issues outlined by the Ministry of Education and Training.
In keeping with the Ministry Regulations 612/613, elections must be held within the first 30 days of each school year.
The Catholic School Council is the official advisory body to the school’s principal. Their respective duties include:
- Developing, recommending and promoting activities which will enhance the quality of school programs
- Improve the levels of student achievement

Elections are held each September. The Council is comprised of elected and appointed representatives of the school community. Meetings are held at 6:30 p.m. in the school library. Dates will be posted on the website calendar. All parents are welcome to attend!
