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.

A School Council provides parents, staff and community the opportunity and the means to advise the Principal and the Board of Education on directions and initiatives which lead to improved learning opportunities for students. It gives you the opportunity to meet and collaborate with our amazing teachers, principal and parents. WE discuss what’s going on in the school, and share our ideas on how to improve overall learning. It’s a great way to be involved and connected.

The Council must operate in a manner that is non-judgmental, is based on open discussion, and uses consensus and collaboration to strive for common understandings and agreements. Sunalta School Council needs parents with ideas and motivation to keep our school an excellent learning environment. School Council is 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.

Meeting Dates 

If you have a child attending Sunalta School you are apart of the School Council. You have a voice and a vote on important matters that affect our children and the school.

Members and the school community participate in School Council meetings, generally 2 hours once per month alternating Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 6:30 PM in our school’s library. Child minding is available.

course, participate in School Council meetings! See our Volunteer page for volunteer opportunities.

The education of our children is a shared responsibility involving the schools families and members of the community. Parents and guardians have the right, as well as the responsibility, to participate in their children’s education and can
contribute to their children’s development in many ways. Your time is invaluable and very much appreciated.
