SWPS School Council

​​​SANDWICH WEST Public School Council

The Sandwich West School Council is a dedicated group of parents who meet regularly with the Principal, Vice Principal staff representatives, and community representatives. As a member of School Council you are able to continue to discover new and exciting ways to contribute to the education of students at SWPS. 

Some things Council focuses on are:

  • Discussing education issues school-wide
  • Providing input in the development of school policies (discipline, EQAO plans of action, dress codes, etc.)
  • Purchasing additional classroom resources
  • Meeting new parents
  • Sponsoring special events
  • Beautification projects
  • Fundraising projects


    Education is a partnership involving many partners including: parents, students, teachers, school administrators, district parent involvement committees and the government. Your involvement in School Council gives you the opportunity to strengthen that partnership, and to be part of a dedicated team working to ensure a high quality education for students.

Everyone is welcome to join School Council, throughout the year. The meetings are conducted virtually.  Research studies have proven that children do better in school when their parents are involved and "in the know".  With all the ongoing educational changes taking place, it is also very important for parental participation.  By attending these meetings you will be part of our productive parents' network.

If you have any questions or comments about our school council, contact with the School Council      

Co-Chairs can be arranged through the school office.  We ask parents to continue to communicate with the classroom teachers (s) and Ms. McDonald and Mrs. Bates if you have specific questions or concerns regarding your child's program or class.
