​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. 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​.​

WCHS Volunteer Interest Form 2023-24  |  wchsexec@gmail.com

Your School / Parent Council connects parents, teachers, and the community to facilitate and improve communication between home and school. We also work together to:

  • support every student's learning experience;
  • keep parents connected with school activities;
  • act as a sounding board for administration;
  • arrange Guest Speakers for parents;
  • represent WCHS at the CBE’s Council of School Councils (CoSC);
  • represent WCHS at the Alberta School Council’s Association (ASCA)..  


Our Members

Every parent or guardian of a student at WCHS is automatically a member of your School / Parent Council.
