​Please visit our COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information. Our plan is subject to change throughout the school year as more information becomes available.​

One way parents/guardians can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on our school’s parent society. Under the School Act, a parent society is 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. The school principal is not part of this group. More information can be found in our CBE Administrative Regulation 5001 – School Councils and School/Parent Societies.​​

Parent Society

Welcome to the Eugene Coste School Council and Enrichment Society!

We look forward to getting to know you over the next several years and hope that you will choose to be involved in our Parent Council and Enrichment Society.  We believe that all people are important and bring unique perspectives, opinions and experiences to our group, and we encourage each of you to share your skills and have your voice heard.

The School Council acts as a bridge between school and parent communication, working closely with administration and different committees made up of parent volunteers.

The Enrichment Society runs the fundraising and works directly with the administration to fund projects and items that – you guessed it! – enrich the student experience. 

Our School Council and Enrichment Society work together and collaborate to do the absolute most we can for all of our children.  We meet once per month from September to May (excluding December). 

You are invited to attend our April 22 meetings as a guest. 

Please sign in, sit back and observe what we currently have going on and what we are starting.  Take some time to ask questions and fill out our membership forms (1 each for Council and Society) and return prior to our May 27th meetings.  During this meeting, Enrichment Society will be voting in two board members positions for Vice-President and Secretary.  If you have a child registered in our school for September 2021 AND you are an active member (membership form completed and returned), you are invited to put your name forward for either position.  If you do not want to put your name forward but have completed the above requirement, you are invited to vote on new board members.

Below you will find a general description of the Enrichment Society Positions: Vice-President and Secretary.
