The Brebeuf College School Council was established in 1996 in response to directives from the Ministry of Education and Training?s Policy/Program Memorandum No. 122.

A Collaborative Partnership

Parents are the primary educators of the students who attend our Catholic schools. In partnership with Brebeuf College School and parish community, parents continue the work of raising their children in an environment shaped by Catholic beliefs and traditions to reach their full potential.

The Catholic School Parent Council of each school provides a vehicle for participation by parents and guardians in the advisory and decision making process of their local school.

The new regulations governing school councils help us to realize our shared goal of improving student achievement through enhanced accountability of the Catholic education system to parents.
