Roden School Council Meeting

You’re invited to join us for the next School Council Meeting on Thursday November 23 at 7:20pm with the Principals report for both schools and then the Roden meeting starting at 7:40pm in the Library. All are welcome.

What’s the price of your time?!


In previous years, Roden School Council has run a major fundraiser in the Fall, asking parents and families to sponsor students and also to donate your time and energies in volunteering to run the activities. In 2016, over $11,000 was raised towards equipment for the Maker Space in the Library, which is used by students at all levels, including our fantastic 3D printer.

This year, we are introducing a Direct Donation Program – no need to volunteer your time for this one! – to continue your support towards educational enrichment for our students.

Our goal this year is to raise funds for Kindergarten / Primary Literacy and Intermediate / Senior Technology equipment. Money raised will benefit all Roden students, this year and beyond. We are suggesting a donation of $25, but please give what you can; even small donations add up.

A donation mailout will be in student backpacks soon, but if you can’t wait you and Roden friends and family anywhere in the world can help support your child’s education by using the information below to support our school.
