Parents and guardians of Rick Hansen Secondary School students are invited to self-nominate for a parent/guardian representative position on School Council.  Our council has 6 parent/guardian representative positions.  Parents are also welcome to any meeting without beginning a part of the official membership.


Nomination forms are due on October 23rd, 2020 by email. Please email the School Council Candidate Nomination Form back to:  [email protected]

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.
