​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

Crescent Heights High School Council (CHHSC)

School councils formalize parents' voices in educational matters at the school level and provide a forum for meaningful involvement in their teenagers’ education.

All parents/guardians are members of the Crescent Heights High School Council and are encouraged to attend regular meetings to provide advice about important issues that impact our school.

Attendance at school council meetings is an excellent way to receive information and stay in touch with school developments. It is also an opportunity to meet other parents/guardians from the broader high school community.

The council’s purpose is:

  • effectively support and enhance student learning by intentionally supporting opportunities that will encourage students to strive for excellence and experience success; and
  • foster the well-being and effectiveness of our School Community; and
  • facilitate effective communication between the Parent community and the school.

The School Council is composed of parents, the principal, a teacher, student representative and a community representative.  Parents and other community members may express interest in (or concern about) the operation of our school through the School Council. It works to develop and support the goals of Crescent Heights High School.
Election of school council executive members occurs in September at the annual general meeting. Crescent Heights High School also has a parents’ society that organizes casinos every two years. Volunteers for these two very important parent organizations are needed, especially parents of Grade 10 students who will be able to participate for the three years and provide continuity while their teenager is at the school.


Meetings are held generally on the last Monday night of the month, starting at 7:00 PM in the Learning Commons, on the second floor. Enter through the front doors to access the school. The Parent Society meeting directly follows the School Council meeting.

The 2022-23 dates are:
