​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

Douglas Harkness School has an active School Council. Every parent or guardian is part of the Council and is invited to attend monthly meetings and become involved in school activities. The Council works closely with the administration of the school to enhance the learning environment for students and has been instrumental in many school-wide events such as fun lunches, family events and other special initiatives. 

The council is always open to your input.
