“ What a great advocate we have in Alice Strachan! Alice is and has been a great supporter of the Halton Hills Schools especially for us up in the north. I was born and raised in Acton, and Alice knows and understands how Acton can feel under-represented but has worked really hard to be present in the schools in both Acton and Georgetown. Alice keeps parents up to date with what is happening at the Board thru emails and social media and always makes an effort to attend School Council meetings to keep up to date with what is happening in the schools. Alice continues to be a strong representative for Halton Hills and I am grateful to have her on our side!"

EFFECTIVE TEAM MEMBER
I have participated on numerous boards and committees both as a committee member and as Chair. I have been a volunteer with the Georgetown Soccer Club, President for last six years, Chair of the Field of Dreams Committee (resulting in Kiwanis Field), member of various school board committees and have participated on and chaired School Councils at LImehouse, Stewarttown and GDHS
In the years that she has served us, Alice has done a wonderful job in bringing the needs of Halton Hills to the forefront in a boardroom where in terms of numbers, we are not well represented. She makes sure that our voices are heard through Joint Council Meetings, and provides the volunteers of the community with various speakers to address the issues that we face in our schools at these meetings. I can only imagine what she could do in the next four years, and I look forward to finding out!

Alice Strachan is a dynamo. As she proved during her 16 years of volunteerism at elementary, middle and high school level school councils, she is a huge advocate for our kids. How wonderful that we have her as our dedicated Trustee!
Alice has it all…business sense, 16 years of volunteerism on school councils, community involvement in spades and a passion for education. Thank you Alice for your stellar work as our Trustee. We are so lucky to have you!
Alice is a hardworking and logical decision maker as our Trustee. Add her passion for kids and her longtime involvement in the Halton school system as both a parent and 16 year school council volunteer… she’s the ideal person to make our school system the best that it can be.
