The Parent Council is a group of parents who support the education and welfare of the pupils with teachers, councillors, and members of the community. We represent the views of parents and promote communication. Sometimes we campaign on specific issues affecting the school. The Parent Council is currently working closely with the school and council to help resolve issues with Safe Routes to school, After School Activities and the Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA).
Our next meeting will take place via Zoom on May 23rd at 6:30 pm. If you wish to join us, please contact us for the link.
How can I get involved?
We welcome anyone who is the parent or guardian of a child at Victoria Primary school – whatever their skills, interests, and experiences. Members of the community without children at the school can be co-opted.
If you would like to join, or you would just like to find out more before deciding whether or not to join, please speak to a member of the Parent Council or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I serve on the Parent Council board?
1. Your child feels a sense of pride to know that his/her parent holds an office.
2. You get to meet and work with wonderful people!
3. You stay updated and informed on what is going on at our school.
4. You can more effectively suggest change at our school.
5. Everyone has different strengths and talents. Everyone has something unique to offer our school and our children!
Can I be a member and work full-time?
Yes! Many of our members hold full or part-time jobs.
Do I have to be a mom to serve on the board?
No! We love to have dads, grandparents, aunts, uncles and anyone who cares about Victoria Primary and the students who attend here.
Does it take a lot of time?
Yes and no–it depends on the position. Some duties can be performed from home and some require your presence at the school. Some positions are seasonal and some require some effort for most of the year. Explore which position would be right for you. The time you donate to actively participate in your child’s school is time well spent. It shows our children that we care about what they do every day.
