Catholic School Council

I would like to start by congratulating our new St.Brendan Catholic School Council(SBNCSC) Members. I am honoured to be Chair of this Council for the 2021-2022 school year.

Our goal is to serve as a bridge between the students, parents, and school staff of St.Brendan. We as a Council will work towards enhancing the education of our children and assist the school in achieving its objectives and goals.

We are off to a positive start and the SBN Council is proud of the contributions that have been made to student success, community building, and enhancing parent participation in education.

On behalf of the Council, I thank you the parents for taking an active role in your child’s education and for your constant support of the SBN Council initiatives. Please come out and attend Council meetings to stay informed and please sign up as a volunteer for our events.
