​​Please visit our COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information. Our plan is subject to change throughout the school year as more information becomes available.​

One way parents/guardians can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on our school’s parent society. Parent societies are a formal group of parents, incorporated under the Societies Act for the purpose of raising funds for the school. A society is a separate legal entity from the school council. The school principal is not part of this group. More information can be found in our CBE Administrative Regulation 5001 – School Councils and School/Parent Societies.​​

Parent Society

The parent society is known as Colonel Walker Community School Association (CWCSA). 

CWCSA is a formal board of parent/guardian volunteers who are elected yearly, incorporated under the Societies Act for the purpose of fundraising and operating a not-for-profit licensed childcare facility known as, Colonel Walker Programs

Fundraising includes Biennial Casino Fundraiser, Mabel’s Labels, Skip the Depot, Winter and Spring Plant Fundraiser and Annual Kitchen Party.  These funds support field trips, residencies (such as ballroom dancing, orienteering and inline skating), library & classroom books, technology (such as Smartboards), enhanced learning (such as wiggle stools, art projects and class pets), events, and teacher appreciation. CWCSA helped purchase musical instruments in 2022 to initiate a new ORFF Musical Program at Colonel Walker school!

Colonel Walker Programs operates out of the ICA Community Hall and provides before/after care, half day kindergarten program, hot lunches and Fundaze (PD days, spring break). 

Meeting Dates/Schedule

As the council and society work closely together, CWCSA board members regularly attend Colonel Walker School Council meetings. CWCSA meetings often follow School Council meetings virtually on the third Tuesday of the Month or meet in person (when possible) on the third Friday of the Month. 

Check our Calendar for exact dates.

RT @CJMCBE: Our Grade 5 students explored Weaselhead Flats today. We learned so much about wetlands, plants, and animals. We studied aquatic invertebrates and saw so many different birds. Thank you to our guide and to our parent volunteers 😃 #WeAreCBE https://t.co/H26VYcj1EY
