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 William Aberhart School Council is an advisory group that facilitates communication among all members of our School Community so that we may work together as partners. All parents (including guardians), teachers, students and other individuals in the community with a stake in our school are members of our School Council.
