​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 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​.​

Information about the impact of COVID-19 on School Councils is available on the CBE website​.​​

School Council

Lake Bonavista School is fortunate to have an active and supportive School Council, which includes a parent society, and, as a Montessori Alternative program, we are also supported by MAPSS, Montessori Alternative Public School Society. 

The School Council collaboratively makes many important decisions that support the learning and educational opportunities of students at our school. Meetings are held monthly. All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend. Please refer to the monthly school calendars for specific meeting dates. Meeting dates are also posted on our Parent Communication Bulletin Board in the foyer outside of the main office.
