On Tuesday, December 22, 2020, on behalf of the Cawthra School Council, Cawthra teacher Jane Chan-Singh presented Trish, manager of the Compass Food Bank with a $3700.00 cheque to support the amazing work of the Compass in our community.

Normally, our Fair December Marketplace event raises funds that we donate to the Compass, but due to the shut down, the event was cancelled.  
Instead, the funds were raised by Cawthra students, Cawthra staff, Cawthra families, and our Peel community.

To those of you who contributed this year, thank your for you donations. Your gifts do make a big difference in our community.

 All parents and guardians are welcome to attend! 


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.
