​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. 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

All parents are welcome to attend school council meetings. Each month a meeting is held at the school. Parents, community stakeholders and staff discuss how best to support learning at our school. The work is significant and greatly valued by students, parents and staff. Please check the calendar for upcoming meetings dates and minutes from meetings will be posted on our website.
