Westminster Woods School Council
Does volunteering make a difference to your children? You bet it does!
“Two clear outcomes flow from a strong volunteer program. Students benefit directly from the additional resources in the school. Volunteers become more knowledgeable about how best to provide support for students which, in turn, further benefits their own children and other students within the school.” Excerpt from “New Research Supports a Strong Focus on Volunteerism” By Gord Kerr http://www.schoolcouncils.net/
Take the opportunity and drop by a meeting to find out where your unique experiences and skill sets could make a difference to your child’s school. Check out the Westminster Woods P.S. School Council By-Laws to review the laws and regulations of our Council and to see if there would be a position that you would be interested in volunteering for!
On this page you will find the minutes from our monthly meetings, email contacts as well as information regarding our upcoming projects and events.
