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​.​



School Council

The School Council holds meetings during the months of September through to June with the exception of the busy months of December and February. Parents are encouraged to attend and give input into the decisions of the Council. Some of the activities that the School Council sponsors yearly include a Welcome Back BBQ, Winter Family Festive Evening, Spring Family Fun Evening, and Special Lunches. The primary goal of events sponsored by the School Council is to enhance the sense of community. The School Council is always open to new ideas, suggestions, and input and is always looking for new and enthusiastic volunteers!

Meeting Dates/Schedule

Due to Covid-19 restrictions this school year, School Council meetings are being held virtually, online, until further notice.  Meeting invitations are sent out via School Messenger to all families, and will start at 7 pm. All parents are welcome to participate.
