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​.​

Meeting Dates/Schedule

We invite and encourage all parents and guardians of G. W. Skene and James Short students to attend our school council meetings this year. These meetings are a great way to become more informed about school events and news and to share your voice on the planning of the year. 

There are opportunities to volunteer in different roles as well. Information will be given during our first meeting.

See our Calendar page for dates.
