One of the most important ways parents/guardians and community members can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on the school council. Under the School Act, a school council is a collective association designed to advise the principal and the CBE Board of Trustees on matters related to the school. School councils have legislated advisory and decision-making authority. They are different from Parent Societies & Associations, whose main function is to raise funds for the school.​​ You can find more details in the CBE School Council Handbook​.​​​​

Our Mission

Our mission is to foster the well-being and effectiveness of our school community and thereby enhance student learning. Council works to facilitate communication among all of the concerned participants of our school community so we may function together, as partners, to create an effective learning environment that enables our students to achieve their potential. Members of our School Community and our School Council will be guided by established bylaws and policies when making decisions, or providing advice, with respect to our school.

Objectives of the School Council

  • Promote fellowship and collaboration in the School Community so that all participants/members work together for the well-being and effectiveness of the school as a community
  • Develop interest in, and understanding of, school activities and to promote involvement in the school among parents and families
  • Provide a forum for questions and concerns, and to inform families about the school
  • Provide volunteer help to assist in the organization and implementation of programs
  • Coordinate the school's fund-raising activities and operate such fund-raising activities as independent organizations or subcommittees of our school council
  • Give the school important extras that might otherwise be unavailable, given the school‚s budgetary constraints, and thereby enhance student learning
