​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​.​

Our Council

Is an active part of our school community, the council works to enrich and enhance the learning experience for all students at our school. We are fortunate to have many opportunities to support our children such as volunteering in the classrooms, library, office, drama productions, computer lab and physical education program, as well as the various parent council endeavors. In addition to the school council, the parent society is actively involved in fundraising for program enhancements for all our students.

Everyone is invited to come participate in the meetings and babysitting is provided. Meetings provide a great opportunity to learn about the educational environment of your child.
