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

The William Aberhart School Council is an advisory group that facilitates communication among all members of our School Community so that we may work together as partners. All parents (including guardians), teachers, students and other individuals in the community with a stake in our school are members of our School Council.

We look forward to connecting and collaborating with you this year in support of student success!

The Friends of OrAnge Association (FOAA) is a formal group of parents, incorporated under the Societies Act for the purpose of raising funds for William Aberhart High School.  While meetings are held following school council on the last Monday of the month, FOAA is a separate legal entity from William Aberhart School Council.  School Council is scheduled from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and FOAA from 8:10 p.m. to 8:40 p.m. so folks may choose to attend one or both meetings.
