School Council

We have a strong, positive, friendly school council at G.P. Vanier – and we are always looking for new members. We have an annual general meeting (AGM) in September of each year to elect the new executive. Consider joining the council – every month or as a drop in. You will enjoy an insider’s view of how the school functions and get to know some other parents in the school community. 

Meeting Dates/Schedule

All meetings are on the last Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m.  The meetings for the remainder of the 2021/22 school year are as follows:

January 24

February 22

March 29

April 26

May 31
