We welcome all parents to participate in our meetings and learn more about St. Mary Catholic Secondary School community and how you can stay informed and engaged. About St. Mary Catholic School Council:

The purpose of St. Mary Catholic School Council is, through the active participation of parents, to improve pupil achievement and to enhance the accountability of the education system to parents and to promote the mission of Catholic education within the school community. St. Mary Catholic School Council’s primary means of achieving its purpose is by making recommendations to the principal and to the board. The St. Mary Catholic School Council shall reinforce, through recommendations and their own activities, the concept of the school as one of the institutions which convey and express the life of the Church. With the broader Church community, the school shares responsibility for the spiritual growth and development of students as part of its educational task. The role of the St. Mary Catholic School Council is advisory. It shall provide ideas and opinions to assist the principal and, where appropriate, the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board in decision-making on educational issues. The advice shall be based on accepted Catholic principles, the general views of the school community and the best interest of all students throughout the school.
