Greg McFarlane is excited to be serving his first term on the Seven Oaks School Division Board of Trustees and looks forward to the honour of making decisions that will impact students’ lives.
Greg is a longstanding fixture in the Maples community, having volunteered with the Maples Community Centre and its basketball program for many years. His biggest accomplishment has been watching the positive impact basketball has on the community, teaching kids fundamental skills and the importance of teamwork.
Greg’s vision for the Division includes reallocating funding for enrichment programs, math, science and arts education as well as an increase in support staff to ensure equality and equity for all learners.
He looks forward to continuing the tradition of meeting students’ diverse needs and is committed to lobbying the Province to change the tax system which continues to favour divisions with higher commercial tax bases. He will also advocate for more daycare and after-school programs, improving playgrounds and increasing green spaces.
