Laura Secord School Council

Laura Secord Secondary School receives guidance, recommendations and support from the parent community via the School Council. The School Council, comprised of parent/guardian volunteers, community members, and students, meets regularly with the Administration to ensure school policies are reasonable and consistent with community expectations. They also support school functions such as the musicals, semi-formals, and graduation as chaperones or extra hands, take part in “Parents Reaching Out” events, as well as raise funds to award scholarships each year to deserving students at graduation.
