The purpose of the School Council is to promote and support education and contribute to a sense of school community at St. Catherine’s.

School Council’s objectives are to:

  • promote cooperation between home and school
  • promote involvement of parents and other community members
  • organize and provide additional resources to help the school through volunteer means
  • provide a formal means of consultation and recommendations for budgetary matters, curriculum, new instructional programs, facilities and equipment and learning resources

Our Council is involved in:

  • giving input into our school improvement plan
  • having an active role in consultation before certain decisions are made
  • keeping an open line of communication between school and home
  • supporting parish initiatives
  • raising funds to support programs
  • organizing special student lunch days; pizza/lunch lady/pita
