Upcoming Ward 15 Forums and School Council Roundtables

Save the Dates! 

As the trustee for our community of schools I regularly hold events that share information and provide opportunities for active parents to learn and share from each other. These events are called "Ward Forums". 

For those who have attended a ward forum in the past, this year we will be doing things a bit differently. We'll have three general ward forums of broad interest to all, from primary all the way through to high school, interspersed by three School Council Chair roundtables... focused in on information, idea-sharing, skills-building and problem-solving for Councils. Open to Chairs or Council designates only.  

Suggestions for agenda items for School Council Roundtables welcome by email to
