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

School Councils are advisory bodies and may advise and consult with the Principal on matters relating to the school.  As part of the Dr. Gordon Higgins’ School Council, parents receive reports on school activities and an update from the Principal. Any parents interested in having a strong connection to the school through volunteering and serving their community are invited to be a part of our school council.

Meeting Dates/Schedule

Council meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm in the staff room. Meetings are generally one hour in length. See our Calendar page for future dates.
