Welcome to the Good Shepherd website. As Chairperson I am proud to say that we have a very supportive, active and engaging School Council. Our present council represents all divisions. This allows us to set goals that benefit all of the students here at Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd School Council supports community building and academic excellence which is our primary mandate as a Council.
Over the years Council has supported events such as: September Meet the Teacher Night, Hot Lunch Program offering lunch 2 times a week, Halloween Dance-a-thon drinks for the students, Christmas Charitable Drives, Shrove Tuesday-Pancake Day, Winter Carnivale, Annual Dinner Dance, Ice-cream Truck at the end of the year BBQ.
With regard to academic support for our teachers and students, we as Council have financial supported reading materials and implemented a very successful music program for 3 years to all grades. Financed scientist in the school, artists in the school, school productions and purchased computers for each class room (2 per class room) and 1 laptop. Finally, we implemented an Ambassador program to build and increase the lines of communication between the School, Teachers, Council and Parents.
I’ve had the pleasure to lead and be a part of this great team for the past 6 years and know that your Council cares and has the best interests for all the students of Good Shepherd. I encourage parents to get involved and be a part of Council, to help us build a stronger school community and support our students in their academic journey.
