 Forest Hill School Council By-laws

As a school council member, you can help Forest Hill discover new and exciting ways to contribute to the education of your students. Education is a partnership involving parents, students, teachers, principals, school boards, government, and the community. Your involvement in the council gives you the opportunity to strengthen that partnership, and to be part of a dedicated team working to ensure a high quality of education here at Forest Hill. Your participation can make a difference!


Forest Hill School Council Annual Reports






Why join us on school council?

Involvement in school council is a meaningful, hands-on way to have a direct, positive impact on your child’s educational experience. Research shows that when parents are involved in their child’s education, the level of student achievement increases. 

Parents/guardians of a student Forest Hill Public School can vote in a school council election  by becoming a parent member of the school council by completing the nomination form and returning it to Forest Hill.

Support for school councils is provided by the Simcoe County District School Board’s Parent Involv​ement Comm​ittee

The Role

  • serve as a communication and information channel between the school and community
