​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

As a parent or guardian, you are eligible to be a member of the School Council. The School Council and the School Administration work closely together to support the initiatives and goals of both the school and the council. This is the primary vehicle where parents provide input and feedback to the School Administration and where many decisions regarding events and programs are made. Please try to attend a council meeting to get a better understanding of the workings and organization of the school. The School Council will post parent information in the school; on this page; on their blog or their Facebook page.
