​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

School Council Involvement 

Pineridge School Council and Parent Society (PSPA) hold their meetings on the first Monday of each month. Parent involvement plays an important role at Pineridge School. During the 2015-16 school year, School Council sponsored two fun lunches, a fundraiser through Norcard, supplied children with juice and snack after vaccinations, covered the cost associated with the school dance residency and paid for one bus per class as fieldtrip transportation. School Council looked into the need for and establishment of a breakfast club as well as more community and volunteer involvement. We have planned to gift a book to every Pineridge student in the 2016-17 school year in alignment with the School Development focus on literacy development. A casino was slated for October 2016, with proceeds going toward the enhancement of learning at the school as linked to the School Development Plan and collaboratively decided with school staff members.
