On October 18, 2014, CAPSC held an Intensive School Council/Association Training Seminar. This event allowed council executives to learn about their legislated roles and how to effectively support their school communities.
We had just over 80 school council executives collect for an incredible five-hour training session. Thanks to the Calgary Board of Education, Principal Martin Pourier, and VP Darrin Whitebread for the use of Western Canada High School and technical support. What a great location for us all to meet. We are grateful to our volunteer session leaders and to the Alberta School Councils’ Association (ASCA) for providing information, tools and support. Researcher and expert Dr. Jim Brandon of U of C shared his work, explaining how school councils can be effective and make a difference. We also thank An Affair to Remember for the lovely luncheon.
