​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


As a parent/guardian of a student at Sansom, you are automatically a part of our school council.  All parents/guardians are invited and encouraged to attend our monthly meetings.  Being a part of the council entails:

  • a relaxed atmosphere in an informal setting
  • great way to learn about what's happening in the school
  • meet other parents/guardians
  • learn about the school's vision and progress
  • each month a different topic is addressed, with a change to meet different staff members
  • support fundraising through casinos every 18 months ($680,000 raised in the last 17 years)
    • opportunity to have input in how casino funds are spent
    • funds have supported the new fitness centre, gym sound system, climbing wall, student agendas, transportation for field trips, technology purchases, and a variety of other resources that support our students.

Meeting Dates/Schedule

Meetings take place on the second Wednesday of the month in the staff room or virtually from 6:30-8:00 pm

  • See our Calendar for dates and times.
  • Please contact the main office for a link to the virtual meetings
