School Council

Brookwood School is pleased to have a very active and supportive school council. School Council meetings are typically held on the fourth Monday of the month during the school year at 7pm in the art or staff room.

All parents who are present at these meetings are permitted to vote on all motions. Your suggestions are very important, so plan to come whenever possible.  

Our School Council's purposes are: 

  • To encourage more parents to become involved in the education of their children with the net result of having a more effective school
  • To provide a formalized structure in order to assist the school with the education of children

Please look for the "News from Our School Council" which will be sent home periodically copied on goldenrod paper. 

The School Council is an active member of the Alberta School Council Association. Through this membership, our school council ensures that the voice of our school community is heard on a provincial level. 

Parents' Collective Commitments 

These commitments were developed by School Council Parents who attended a School Planning Retreat. These commitments were reviewed in 2010. It is the hope of our School Council that all parents will become familiar with these commitments and will assist in creating a strong learning environment for children of Brookwood.
