F.J. McElligott/ Mattawa District Public School
School Advisory Council
Who are we?
We are a group of individuals such as parents, caregivers, teachers, and community members. We get together approximately once a month to discuss what is happening within out schools and how we can support learning through different initiatives.
What do we do?
At our monthly meetings the principals from M.D.P.S and F.J.M deliver reports on school programming, staff, and events. We discuss how we can support the students of each school. We also organize fundraisers which support extra-curricular activities at both schools.
