G.S. Lakie School Council is a partnership of administration, teacher representatives, parents and community members who meet once a month to discuss issues, concerns and other topics of interest acting within the framework of the school council bylaws. Research clearly shows that if parents are actively involved in children’s learning, children will be more successful at school. The school council vision is that a collective association of parents, teachers, principals, staff and community work together to promote the well-being and effectiveness of all within the school and thereby enhance student learning. This shared commitment will make the common goal a reality – better education.
The school council operates under a town hall model whereby all parents or guardians of children attending G.S. Lakie are automaticly members of the school council and are welcome to attend any of the meetings. Our School Council here at G.S. Lakie strives to communicate with all of the parents of the school and encourages parental attendance whenever possible.
