One way parents/guardians can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on our school’s parent society. Under the School Act, a parent society is a formal group of parents, incorporated under the Societies Act for the purpose of raising funds for the school. A society is a separate legal entity from the school council. The school principal is not part of this group. More information can be found in our CBE Administrative Regulation 5001 – School Councils and School/Parent Societies.​​

Our Parent Society is Known as the Colonel Irvine Parent Advisory Association (CIPAA)

The Colonel Irvine Parent Advisory Association (CIPAA) is a registered group that raises funds for school-wide programs, activities, events and needs. Members are generally comprised of the same volunteers as the CISC. Fundraising activities include hosting a casino approximately every two years as well as other fundraising events throughout the school year.

Meeting Schedule

Our meetings are usually held the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 PM in either the staff room or Learning Commons. Both CISC & CIPAA meetings are held on the same date and follow one after each other. All parents/legal guardians of Irvine students are very welcome to attend! 

See our Calendar for exact dates and times.

To view CISC or CIPAA minutes or financials, please contact us. Digital or paper copies are available for all Colonel Irvine parents/guardians.
