​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

Sunnyside School Council

The School Council is a representative group of parents, teachers and administration. School Council acts as an advisory group to school administration and teachers on issues that concern our children. The School Council is an integral part of Sunnyside School. All parents are automatically members of the Council and are invited to attend the monthly meetings. School Council meeting notices, and the agenda and supporting documents for meetings are posted on the school website in advance of each meeting. This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, meetings are held online.
