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 have a strong, positive, friendly school council at G.P. Vanier – and we are always looking for new members. We have an annual general meeting (AGM) in September of each year to elect the new executive. Consider joining the council – every month or as a drop in. You will enjoy an insider’s view of how the school functions and get to know some other parents in the school community. All meetings are on the last Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm.
