The St. Ann’s Academy School Committee was formed in January 2002 when the school came under the mandate of the Catholic Independent Schools of the Kamloops Diocese (CISKD). The parents elected to the Committee at the Annual General Meeting are listed below, noting the Parish they represent on our committee.

School Committee meetings are typically held on the last Tuesday of each month at 6:00 pm in the SAA Meeting Room or via zoom teleconferencing. If parents or staff would like to add an item to the agenda, it must be submitted to the School Committee Chair a minimum of one week prior to the meeting. Items may be submitted via email to or in writing to the attention of St. Ann’s Academy School Committee Chair, 205 Columbia Street, Kamloops, BC V2C 2S7.

Mrs. Jeanne Vos – Holy Family

Vice Chairperson

Jeanne has been involved some way or another in St. Ann’s Academy since the fall of 1980 (before most of you were born). Her two children and four grandchildren have attended St. Ann’s Academy in the past. She still maintains an interest in St. Ann’s Academy as she believes in our Catholic faith and being taught by the influence of Catholics gives a better start when in the work world. She worked in finance, banking and was a Kamloops Realtor for 28 years. She is now retired and has all her children and 9 grandchildren living in Kamloops. St. Ann’s Academy and Holy Family Parish have given her a great sense of belonging. No matter where she goes, someone knows her.

One of the objectives of the School Committee, as outlined in our manual, is “to foster the full Christian education and development of our children within the framework of a Catholic environment and philosophy, and to encourage the development of true Catholic values as outlined in the Philosophy Statement of Education of Catholic Schools.” (July 1994)
