John Fraser School Council


The John Fraser School Council is a group of parents, students and educators whose goal is to improve student success by engaging parents as active partners in the education system.  We meet several times throughout the year.  We also help organize teams of volunteers to assist the school with important projects.

School council meetings provide a great opportunity to learn about what is happening within the school and to help shape school policies and programs.  Our meetings are always open to the public.  All parents and members of our community are always encouraged to attend.  You can participate fully in our discussions, ask questions, or just listen and watch what we do.

For more information about the school council and our activities, you can visit the school council blog at:  If you would like to receive periodic updates from the school council via e-mail, contact us at and let us know.  We will add you to our e-mail news list.

If you have a question, a comment or a concern, we would like to hear from you.  Please e-mail us or contact us through the school office.

More Information
Every publicly funded school in Ontario has a school council.  If you would like to learn more about school councils, you can find many Resources for School Councils on the Peel Board website.



Each Peel board school has a school council—a group focused on helping students succeed.

Councils offer advice to the school principal on a number of topics. In Peel, most of the work of councils focuses on three main areas: school community communication strategies, ways of responding to parents and the community and school code of behaviour. School councils include parents, school staff, community representatives and, in some cases, students.

We welcome and encourage the participation of parents and community members in our schools, and on councils.

Everything you need to know about school councils includes information on the role of council, the term of office for elected positions and more. You can also find out more in Your School Council Guide — a one-stop shop for school council members in Peel. Visit the School Council section of the Peel board website for more information.
