​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

As a parent or guardian, you are eligible to be a member of the School Council. The School Council and the School Administration work closely together to support the initiatives and goals of both the school and the council. This is the primary vehicle where parents provide input and feedback to the School Administration and where many decisions regarding events and programs are made.

Please try to attend a council meeting to get a better understanding of the workings and organization of the school. The School Council will post parent information in the school; on this page; on their blog or their Facebook page. 

Meeting Dates/Schedule

School Council Meetings start at 6:30 pm and are generally on the third Wednesday of each month. Both School Council and Enhancement Society meetings will be together at the same time. These meetings will be offered in person at the school and online to help ensure as many people that want to be involved are able to join!

Currently scheduled dates are:

  • Wednesday January 18 (EHS Council)
  • Wednesday February 15 (EHSES & EHS Council)
  • Wednesday March 15 (EHS Council)
  • Wednesday April 12 (EHSES & EHS Council)
  • Wednesday May 17 (EHS Council)
  • Wednesday June 14 (EHSES & EHS Council)


We will start the meetings at 6:30pm and will begin with the Enhancement Society meeting followed by the School Council meeting.
