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​.​​​​

Parents, guardians, or legal representatives of students enrolled in Robert Thirsk High School are all welcome and encouraged to attend these meetings and may vote when in attendance. RTHS students are also welcome to attend, as well as any special guests as the agenda topics allow/require.

Meeting Dates/Schedule

Meetings are typically held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM in the Learning Commons and are usually adjourned by 9:00 PM. See our Calendar page for dates and times.
