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​.​

School Council

One of the most significant ways parents and community members can make a meaningful difference in the lives of our students is through school councils. By connecting students, schools and communities, school councils help nurture and inspire our students to achieve their full potential. To understand the purpose of School Council and Parents Association please read Administrative Regulation 5001 - School Councils and School/Parent Societies.

All Falconridge parents and guardians are invited to attend meetings of our school council. The Falconridge School Council is comprised of both parents and staff representatives. Our goal is to work together to create a positive learning environment for our children. Through the council, we can strengthen communication between home and school. We discuss and plan for our school’s future. We also support special events.  Please inform the office if you are interested in attending our council meetings.

Meeting Dates/Schedule

Our Council usually meets on the fourth Monday of the month at 3:45pm.  Meetings are held virtually.
