Ward 7 Council
Schools in our ward (Ward 7) are invited to send a representative
an alternate to Ward 7 Councils, which are convened regularly by our
trustee, Irene Atkinson, our elected representative on the Board. Present
at these Council meetings are parent reps, principals, TDSB superintendents
and other interested parties.
Our trustee represents the interests of Ward 7 schools in the decision-making
processes of the TDSB, and so, at Ward 7 Council meetings, Trustee Atkinson
seeks input concerning matters coming before the Board. Garden’s
representative on this Council will bring the matter in question to the
School Council Executive – and, where appropriate, to the school
community through general meetings – for discussion and direction.
In the past, Ward 7 schools, through our trustee, have spoken out concerning
budget decisions, school music programs, anti-bullying programs and many
other important issues.
Parent Community Network
Representatives from each Ward Council and members of Community Liaison
Groups are invited to attend meetings of the Parent Community Network,
where information and issues of concern to parents across the TDSB are
on the agenda.
Currently, our Ward 7 rep to the Parent Community Network is Garden
Avenue P.S. parent Natasha Teoli.
Working together with school administration and our dynamic trustee,
we’re looking forward to another year of speaking out for the interests
of Garden parents and students.
