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​.​​​​

As a parent or guardian, you are a member of the Somerset School Council. The School Council works closely with the school, as an advisory group, to enhance student learning and support the initiatives and goals of both the school and the council. The Friends of Somerset School Foundation (FSSF) fundraises to provide additional money for opportunities for the school to enhance learning following recommendations from the school and input/support from the School Council.

Plan to attend a council meeting to get a better understanding of the direction the school is taking towards your child‟s education. Your voice and involvement makes a difference. Babysitting is provided during School Council and FSSF meetings in the gymnasium courtesy of the both groups.
