​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

H.D. Cartwright has an active School Council that supports the school by serving as a link between the school, the home, and the community. The Council is a collective of parents, administration and teachers working together to promote the well-being and effectiveness of the entire school community, to enhance student learning, and to facilitate cooperation among the concerned participants in the local school. All parents/guardians are encouraged and welcome to attend the meetings.
