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​.​​​​

We realize that parents are very busy but we welcome any involvement that you may give. As a parent or guardian, you automatically become a member of the School Council and we invite your input and opinions. We work closely with the Administration to support the initiatives and goals of both the School and The Council. 

Meeting Dates/Schedule

Please try to attend a Council meeting to get a better understanding of the direction the school is taking towards your child's education. Meetings take place at 6:30 pm every second Tuesday of the month. See our Calendar page for dates and times.
