This committee is inactive at this point, as the new addition has been approved for Norseman building and the over-crowding issue ought to be resolved by this and the pending decisions re future of Castlebar site.
Norseman school is overcrowded. In the past, we have been very active in looking at options to mitigate the issue.
Currently, we are monitoring the development in our catchment area, and the changing demographics. We keep abreast of activities at the school board that might affect our school. Including the plans for Castlebar school, just south of Norseman.
We lobby the school board, the city and the province with regard to our over-crowded school. And we work with the school to find solutions for working with what we've got.
We all agree that the atmosphere at school has not been affected by the overcrowding. Teachers and Students are happy and you can tell when you walk in the building. It is a GOOD place to be. Warm and welcoming with admin staff that know all the children by name, and teachers who really know the kids - even those they haven't taught.
We can always use people who will keep an eye on the agendas and minutes at the school board and board of trustees. If you are the lobbying, letter-writing type, your skills would be well used in this committee.
