School Council Elections

ESA’s School Council will be holding elections for a variety of positions at our upcoming meeting of October 11th.

The School Council is an important group that advises the school’s administration, provides information to the parent and wider community and supports both the academic and arts goals of the school.

Along with parents and guardians, School Council Meetings are attended by Principal Rob MacKinnon, teacher representative Enid Wray, the Student Council President Jayda White and SESAT President Beverly Marinucci. All are welcome and encouraged to attend. The ESA school council meetings take place the second Tuesday of each month in the Library from 7:00 pm-9:00 pm.

The elected positions that are up for election this year will be:
