Hewson Public School has an active School Council. Throughout the year they consult on school policies and procedures. Our School Council Chair is Shelly Hussein.
School councils play an important role in student success. They encourage a strong partnership between the school and the family and help parents become actively involved in the education of their children. School councils help good schools become better.
School councils are expected to:
• Advise the principal and, where appropriate, the board
• Place the interests of students first
• Support the Peel board’s school success planning goals
• Encourage parent and community involvement in the educational system
• Promote positive attitudes towards public education
Our next meeting will be on Monday, May 29, 2017 starting at 5:00 p.m. in the library. All are welcome to attend.
