​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. More information can be found in our CBE Administrative Regulation 5001 – School Councils and School/Parent Societies.​​

Parent Society

Our Parent Society is known as Parent Association.

We welcome parent participation on both the School Council and the Parent Association. There are four to five meetings this year as well as the Annual General Meeting. All dates will be posted at least two weeks before the next event. Meeting times start 7:00 PM on the scheduled date and will be held via Microsoft Team online until in person group meetings are reinstated.

Please support your school community through participation on the School Council / Parent Association. A small investment of time makes a dramatic impact on the programming we are able to offer students. 

If you are interested in joining the School Council please come to a meeting. 

Meeting Schedule

The School Council meets from 7:00 – 8:00 PM with the Parent Association meeting following the School Councils adjournment. 

See our Calendar page for dates and times.


Parent Association & School Council next Annual General Meeting is scheduled for November 23, 2022 at 7:00 PM

Meeting invite is posted below and will also be sent out to the Alternative High School Community through School Messenger

This meeting will be in person at Alternative High School.   If parents would like to attend virtually, they can use this link

Congratulations to the Lord Beaverbrook High School Jazz Band and Dr. E.W. Coffin School Grade 4, Room 5. They are finalists in the CBC Canadian Music Class Challenge. Check out their submissions! #WeAreCBE https://t.co/w1deVgh1NT https://t.co/pm7fX4SjDL https://t.co/jAub282BwY

RT @ZooSchoolyyc: How do we teach the value and importance of our connection to all living things? Maybe by getting to know our local neighbours? This is a concept our Chris Akkermann students are just beginning to understand. Have you spotted this local winter bird? https://t.co/W2MjY26FrR

RT @kinggeorgecbe: Le défi du flocon de neige a commencé! Comment est-ce que tous les élèves dans chaque classe vont créer un flocon de neige qui est aussi grand que Mme Shafina ou Mme Renée, en utilisant seulement le papier, les ciseaux et la laine? @CBELanguages #WeAreCBE https://t.co/F6vE6jP5td

RT @KeelerSchool: Grade 6 students created pictograph rocks using symbols and colours to communicate their connections to the land. #WeAreCBE #Keeler https://t.co/z18gyFvOZS
