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 School 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

Cecil Swanson School is supported by a small but very active and supportive school council that meets once a month to determine how they can best support student learning. Their efforts support and enhance the teaching and learning of every child at our school. Many activities with costs are either partially or fully covered by school council fundraising. Physical Education equipment, activities (i.e. swimming lessons, field trips, classroom presentations resources, and the Gr. 6 Camp Chief Hector 3-day camp) are a few examples of the excellent work that our parents support us in.

Meeting Dates/Schedule

School council meetings will start at 6:30 PM in the Staff Room.

  • Future meeting dates:
    • First Tuesday of every month
    • February 4th will be the next meeting.
