​One way parents/guardians can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on our school’s parent society. Parent societies are a formal group of parents, incorporated under the Societies Act for the purpose of raising funds for the school. A society is a separate legal entity from the school council. More information can be found in our CBE Administrative Regulation 5001 – School Councils and School/Parent Societies.​​

Parent Society

Our Parent Society is known as Elbow Park School Parent Society (EPPS).

Some of the activities undertaken by our Council include: fundraising; organizing of social activities for the children; coordination of charitable activities; special lunches; and more. These activities have a major impact on the success and enjoyment of the children at the school.
