Parent Groups

Westminster School Council (W.S.C.)

Westminster’s School Council (W.S.C.) is a group of parents, teachers, principal, staff, students and community members who work together to promote the effectiveness of the entire school community and thereby enhance student learning.  

A school council facilitates cooperation among all those who have an interest in the programs and policies of the local school.  School councils provide advice and consultation to the principal regarding educational issues across all programs.  While the Council’s goal is to form a working partnership with the school, the principal and school board will continue to be responsible for the day-to-day operation of the school and the ultimate responsibility of ensuring that decisions are in the best educational interest of the students in the school and the district.  

Please consider joining our hybrid and and engaged Westminster School Council for 2021- 2022.  Based on parent feedback, we will meet both online via Zoom and in person for specific meetings in the school year.  Our students’ learning and development are influenced by the key systems of their lives – family, school, friends, and community. Our goal is to engage our families in working together as a learning community! All parents are welcome to attend. Minutes of the meetings and agendas are posted to Schoolzone. You can contact our WSC Chair, Sheila Graham, at westminschoolcouncil@gmail.com.
