We have several volunteers, that have contributed their time and energy to school council/parents association for many years, that are ready to move onto other exciting volunteer opportunities. As such, we are looking to fill a few key roles for the 2015/16 school year:
Parent Association Chair
The West Dalhousie Parent Association (WDPA) is our fundraising parent society. The main job of the WDPA, and the chair, is to run our biannual casino fundraiser. This involves recruiting and scheduling volunteers for the two day casino. Other jobs include: chairing WDPA meetings, signing authority on bank account, supporting other members of WDPA executive (vice chair, treasurer, secretary). The playground project is also being run through our parent society, thus oversight of this project is required until October 2015.
School Council/Parent Association Secretary
One person to act as secretary for both parent groups. School council meets 8 times a year. Parent Association meets about 2 times a year, on the same day as a school council meeting. Secretary takes minutes at the meeting and emails them to attendees. Minutes are also uploaded onto the Google Drive associated with this webpage.
School Council Special Events Coordinator
One person to join a two person special events team! These coordinators are in charge of our awesome community-building events like movie night, family dance, grade 6 vs staff basketball game and muffin mixer. All events have excellent templates and one special events coordinator remains on council.
School Council Treasurer
One person to look after the books of the school council. Several years of budgets and full templates are available.
We are always looking for more parents to get involved! Join us at our next meeting on May 7 to find out more! If you would like to contact the School Council Chair for more details, please fill out the form below.
