​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​.​

School Council

Meeting Dates/Schedule

Council meetings will be generally held on the first Wednesday of each month at 6:30 - 9:00 pm.  They will be held in-person, in the learning commons at Balmoral School and will also be streamed live on MS Teams.  An invite will be sent out the week previous.  As always, all parents are welcome to attend meetings to hear from the Principal and to share ideas and provide input. See our Calendar page for dates and times.

The first parent council meeting will be at Wednesday, September 28 at 6:30 pm.
