We welcome all parents to participate in our meetings and learn more about our community

The purpose of St. Thomas the Apostle CSC is, through the active participation of parents, to improve pupil achievement and to enhance the accountability of the education system to parents and to promote the mission of Catholic education within the school community.

The St. Thomas Catholic School Council’s primary means of achieving its purpose is by making recommendations to the school principal. The Council shall reinforce, through recommendations and their own activities, the concept of the school as one of the institutions which convey and express the life of the Church.

With the broader Church community, the school shares responsibility for the spiritual growth and development of students as part of its educational task.

The role of the St. Thomas Catholic School Council is advisory. It shall provide ideas and opinions to assist the principal and, where appropriate, the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board in decision-making on educational issues.

The advice shall be based on accepted Catholic principles, the general views of the school community and the best interest of all students throughout the school.

Catholic School Council 2023-2024 Meeting Dates  will be posted after our Monday, October 2nd, 2023 Meeting.

All meetings will take place at 6:30 p.m. in the STTH Library/Learning Commons (weather permitting)
