Ottawa Carleton Assembly of School Councils (OCASC) Representative:

The OCASC Rep attends OSASC monthly meetings at Fisher Park School on Holland Ave. and reports back to Hopewell School Council on what was discussed. It's a great way to find out what issues the other school councils are discussing and dealing with.

School Council Committees:

Budget Committee:
The Budget Committee typically only meets once at the start of the year to discuss and set the budget. The school administration provides a "wish list" of various items to help enhance the learning environment and the budget committee reviews the available funds and determines what could and could not be funded. The budget is presented to council for approval. If there are financial issues over the year, the Budget committee may be asked to provide feedback. 

Safe and Accepting School Team (formally Inclusive Safe & Caring):

The Safe and Accepting School Team is responsible for developing, monitoring and reflecting on the student well-being plan, with direction from the school principal. They aim to promote equitable and inclusive school and classroom environments.
This team is TBD. We are waiting for further direction from the school Board.

Yard Committee:
Hopewell's Yard Committee is focused on keeping the yard looking its best. Twice a year they organize a team that rakes, weeds and sweeps the yards, but they also help keep the plants and trees healthy and strong. The committee is always looking for extra hands; please contact either Katie and Heather if you'd like to be involved.
