​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 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​.​

Information about the impact of COVID-19 on School Councils is available on the CBE website​.​​



School Council

Parents/ Guardians Welcome

We realize that parents are very busy but we welcome any involvement that you may give. As a parent or guardian, you automatically become a member of the School Council and we invite your input and opinions.

The School Council works closely with the administration to support the initiatives and goals of both the school and the council. Please try to attend a council meeting to get a better understanding of the direction the school is taking towards your child's education.

All parents of students who attend CJM are invited to attend our meetings. School Council meetings are opportunities for open dialogue involving parents and school staff, concerning school operation, planning and current issues. School Council Meetings are not Parent/Teacher Conferences.

During School Council meetings parents are invited to ask questions, share opinions, seek information and join in planning activities on behalf of our students. Please plan to join. If you would like to add an item to the School Council meeting agenda, please contact our School Council chair, Ms. Kerryanne van der Westen.


Meeting Dates/Schedule

  • See our Calendar page for meeting dates and times.
  • School Council meetings will be held on the last Wednesday of each month at 6pm.
  • For the 2021-2022 school year, School Council meetings will be held virtually through Microsoft Teams - a code will be shared via school messenger the week of the meeting.
