Ruth Pawson School Community Council

Welcome!

The School Community Council is the community's connection to our school. It is made up of parents, school administration, teachers and even representatives from the students.

Meetings are usually held on the Second Tuesday of each month, beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Resource Centre.
We would love to see you there. Child care is provided.

The SCC is a publicly elected body that is responsible to the school community and to the Board.  An Scc has no authority over any matter that would normally be the responsibilty of the school or the school board administration.  The principal and the teacher are the SCC's direct links back to the school, staff and student community.  The principal is responsible for the administration of the school and has authority, under some direction of RPS over the running of the school, its activities and projects.
