Brampton, ON | Grades JK - 8 | Shortlist
The parents at MCA for the most part are great people. The parent council is a strong group of committed individuals and they work hard to carry out their yearly duties. I love the Christ-like atmosphere that the school possesses and it is evident throughout the community on a whole. Parents are an extension of Christ-like feel and do a great job at coming together for the greater good off all the kids in place. School events are well attended and supported and when called on - parents are always willing to work with the kids as well to help carry out any task. Whether it be leading up a training for the kids to preform at the next concert or helping run refreshments after the play - no job is too small or big.
Every two months there is a Parent Teacher Association (PTA ) meeting, these meetings are geared towards keeping parents updated with the school's present and future projects. The teachers and principals are always present as well as the PTA members. They are always careful to involve the parents in everything that happens at the school as well as encourage parents to get involved in the school's parent council or volunteer at the school for any event they may have. They would often say "This is your school", I feel as though I am part of a community, as the parents are the ones that are asked to volunteer at every event the school has. We have an opportunity to be a part of the planning process or volunteering on the day of the event. This goes a long way in encouraging a closer community at the school.
