Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
As part of being a representative school council, we endeavor to seek your feedback on issues before the school council.
We have created a survey to obtain your anonymous input/feedback. The results will be used to inform our parent representative’s responses to the actual Ministry survey which closes on November 28, 2014.

Here are some of the things we talked about at school this week:
To promote Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week November 17th-21st we invited musical guests The Campfire Crew to come to Dewson to celebrate friendship and standing tall! Their singable musical performance promoted a positive, inclusive school culture. They encouraged our students to have courage and the meaningful language to use so that they can become helpful bystanders.
They also taught us the acronym H.E.L.P – H for Have their HEADS UP – they are aware of bullying & ready to help. E for Show EMPATHY and care about the victim’s feelings. L for Use a LOUD voice & strong words to stand up to bullying. P for Help get the victim to a safe PLACE.
