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 School 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​.​​​​

School Council

Our Mission

To contribute to the development of children who are Responsible, Well Educated, Compassionate, have a Sense of Community, a Love of Learning, and are Supportive, Kind and Inclusive.


Meeting Dates/Schedule

Meetings are held one Wednesday per month at  6:30 PM at the school. All parents/guardians are members of the school council and are encouraged to attend the meetings and become involved in their child’s school community. We welcome your participation!
