Earl Haig School Council depends on family, guardians, and the Earl Haig community to assist with planning, organizing, and staffing our events. With your support, we cannot make the events happen, as we are always in need of dedicated volunteers! Throughout the school year there are many events hosted by School Council (listed below); we would love to have you join in the fun! Please think about your interests and time availability, and contact us soon.
If you have any special skills that you think would be beneficial to supporting our events, or council in general please let us know. Help is always appreciated.
There are lots of ways adults can be involved at Earl Haig PS!
