Oodenawi Public School - Call for Council Members to Join School Council

Have you ever thought that you would like to become more involved in the Oodenawi’s School community, but were looking for the right volunteer opportunity?

Each year in the fall, interested parents/guardians have the opportunity to become a part of the School Council. The Council meets one evening a month at the school. Council is made up of a Chair (or 2 Co-Chairs) , Treasurer, Secretary, Fundraising/Volunteer Coordinator, Parent Involvement Committee (PIC) representative and Council members. Council is made up of a number of parents/guardians who have a keen interest in contributing their voices, ideas and talents.

Ready to get involved?

Take some time to review the School Council Constitution so that you can have a better understanding as to the work of Council as well as the role descriptions for each of our elected members.

You are eligible to run for Council if:

  • you are the parent or guardian of a student attending Oodenawi.

  • you are willing to attend meetings in person during the evenings at the school.
