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​.​​​​

The Earl Grey School Council is a terrific way to meet the parents, find out about school activities first hand and contribute to your child's education. Every parent or legal guardian of a child attending our school is a member of the School Council and has the right to attend meetings and vote. 

Meeting Dates/Schedule

Parents and staff work closely together to create the best possible learning environment for our students.  Evening School Council meetings will be held throughout the school year and all parents are encouraged to attend.  The meetings provide an excellent opportunity for collaboration on the development and effectiveness of our school programs. 

See our Calendar page for dates and times.

CBE playgrounds remain closed. We will begin re-opening on Monday, June 1. Openings will continue throughout next week.
