​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

Involvement of Parents / Guardians

Successful, effective schools achieve a strong triangle between the home, the student and the school.  We know that good communication and positive relationships between parents and the school will result in a better education for students.  Here are some ways for families to become involved:

School Council functions to provide meaningful parent input into the affairs of the school.  The council serves as a communication mechanism between school and parents.  We have an annual general meeting (AGM) in September of each year to elect the new executive.  Please consider joining the council – every month or as a drop in.  Families will enjoy an insider’s view of how the school functions and get to know some other parents in the school community.  The group meets on alternating Tuesday and Wednesday evenings of most months throughout the year; see the school calendar for specific dates.  On an interim basis, meetings will be held virtually. All parents/guardians of Woodman students are welcome and encouraged to attend these meetings. 

Meeting Dates/Schedule

All meetings start at 7 PM.
Please see our calendar page for dates.
