My Engagement and School Council visits

I thought I would post my own list of School Council meetings, events and engagement events I have attended in my terms as Trustee for Wards 1 & 2. This is not the only times I have met with parents, students or teachers in schools to engage and discuss education, but this gives a pretty accurate snapshot of my interest and commitment to the schools I represent.

Many school council meetings are on Tuesday nights which are also Board meeting nights so it sometimes poses an issue.  School Council meetings and going to schools are just one part of a Trustee’s role.  Engagement and listening to people about their views on public education come in many different forms and sometimes in the most unusual of places.  For those that have heard me speak, some of my most favourite places to talk about the value of public education is the Costco, Starbucks, the shopping mall, with my dad’s friends who live in Bowness, the YMCA, community events, dinner parties with friends, walking in Bowness Park, the hockey rink and yes Facebook and Twitter to name a few.

For me, talking about public education and how we can continue to build a strong foundation for public education in Calgary is exciting.
