Staying connected to the school is important in supporting your child through the Junior High years and School Council is just one way for parents to do so.
School Council is made up of parents, staff and community representatives who work together for the best interest of students. School council provides parents with an opportunity to support student learning by gaining an understanding of what is going on within the school. Parents also share a perspective with the school principal so decisions are made that reflect the beliefs and values of students, staff and parents.
Your involvement in School Council can be as simple as attending one or more meetings scheduled throughout the year; reading updates in the monthly school newsletter; responding to invitations to share your views; taking a position on the executive and/or reading our Principal Reports and School Council minutes. The minutes will be distributed via "The Hawk's View", a weekly emailed school bulletin, and will be posted below. Other information which may be shared via email will be:
- agendas in advance of the upcoming meeting,
- invitations to special evenings for parents,
- other information that would be of interest to parents of FRH and
- opportunities to provide input at any time on school events, issues or any matters of importance to parents, students and staff.
