Message from Oakville School Parent Council Chairperson


We as a parent council would like to thank the parents and the staff of Oakville School for their ongoing support and input. As a body whose mission is to support the ongoing success of our school we encourage all parents to attend our monthly meetings or talk to one of the members of the council. If you are unable to attend the meetings the minutes of the meeting will accompany the monthly newsletters. The Oakville Parent Council is involved with a number of ongoing initiatives that we believe enhance the environment of our school. These include 

  1.  Mini Canteen every Tuesday run by the student council .
  2. Staff Appreciation week, when we celebrate our staff with a lunch and other goodies throughout the week.
  3. Helping fund the Grade 8 Farewell Trip
  4.  Upon request we provide financial assistance, and volunteers, if required, to programs that together with our teachers we feel would benefit our students.
  5. Committee within PC that is continually looking at improving and maintaining our playground and physical activity facilities.
  6. Attending and contributing to the goal setting of our school.
  7. Sitting on the Oakville Community Club Board.
  8. School Float in the Portage Santa Claus Parade.


We as Parent Council realize that finances are always tight so we try to keep our fundraising to a minimum while still maintaining enough to fund those initiatives we feel are important. We are always looking for new and inventive ways to raise funds and if anyone has ideas please let us know, in the past we have done:

  1. Trivia Night
  2. New Bothwell Cheese Fundraiser
  3. Garage Sale “Table” at town garage sale
  4. Selling Cookie dough, mom’s pantry etc


Thank you again for your support and we look forward to your suggestions and attendance at our meetings.


Kim Nikkel
Chairperson 2015-2016
