​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 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 Education 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​.​

Information about the impact of COVID-19 on School Councils is available on the CBE website​.​​



School Council

Colonel Walker School Council plays an active advisory role in school improvement planning. The Council supports enhanced learning and well-being of the students; advises the Principal and Board of Trustees on school matters and shares information. The Principal, in collaboration with the School Council, engage the school community ( parents/guardians/students/teachers) in decision-making.

All parents and guardians of enrolled Colonel Walker students are invited to attend and participate in monthly meetings. School Council Executive Roles of Chair and Co-Chair are elected parent/guardian volunteer roles that collaborate with the school administration, the school community, and the parent society, known as, Colonel Walker Community School Association (CWCSA).

Colonel Walker School Council and Colonel Walker Community School Association are separate legal entities and serve different functions. However, we have merged certain operational aspects to serve our small community more efficiently.

Meeting Dates/Schedule

School Council generally meets every third Tuesday of the month from 6:00 – 7:30 PM. Meetings are currently virtual and a Teams Meeting Link can be found on our Colonel Walker Parents FB Page or emailing the school directly. 

Please see the calendar for dates and times.
