Would you like to contribute to your child’s school but work full time and cannot commit during the day? Well how about giving the SAC (School Advisory Council) a try. This is a committee made up of parents, community members and school staff that help make decisions in the best interest of the students.

School Advisory Councils (SAC) bring partners together to make decisions and solve problems in the best interest of student learning. All partners on the SAC have a voice so that the needs of students are represented and the school is responsive to the community it serves.”

We meet 6 times a year in the evening. Come out and support your child and help make a difference in their learning. Contact the school at 902-852-2062, ext 0 if you are interested! Our first meeting is Thursday, Sept 24 at 6:15pm

Every September, provinces take turns hosting the Canadian Student Leadership Conference (CSLC). This coming September, Halifax West High School will be home for close to 900 visitors from all across the country. It’s an amazing experience for these students and their advisors, who bring so much enthusiasm, energy, spirit and positivity to the conference. They return to their schools brimming with ideas for how to better their schools and their school communities.

The visiting students (including some from our own province who live outside of HRM) are billeted with host families. We’re hoping to find these families (who will be responsible for giving these students a bed, breakfast and transportation for the 5 days of the conference) among our schools’ staff, the families of our student participants, and community members.

Our School Board requires that we request a Criminal Records Check and Vulnerable Sector Check for every person in the billet household who is 18 years and older in order for them to be eligible to host these students. Those checks will be performed free of charge.

How can you become a billet family? Simply complete the “CSLC Volunteer Billet” form, along with a Criminal Records Check form for every person 18 years and older who will be in the household at the time of the conference and return it to Halifax West. The Criminal Records Check form must be submitted with 2 pieces of ID (one of which is photo ID). Visit the following webpage for more information: http://cslc2015.studentleadership.ca/volunteer/billeting/

Halifax West and the CSLC organizing team – especially the Billet Co-Chairs! – look forward to hearing from you. If you have any questions, please contact Lynn Moulton at Halifax West (lmoulton@hrsb.ca, 902-457-8900 ext 6) or Megan McCormick (Megan.McCormick@hrsb.ca).
