​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

We have a strong, positive, friendly school council at Vanier – and we are always looking for new members. We meet on the last Tuesday of each month at 7:00 (See calendar). We will have an annual general meeting (AGM) in October this year to elect the new executive. Please consider joining the council – every month or as a drop in. You will enjoy an insider’s view of how the school functions and get to know some other parents in the school community.
