Parent Council

Parent Advisory Council

Bentley School Council is made up of a group of parents who meet approximately every other month (now virtually) along with the school administrators, trustee, and town council representative to share information about plans for the school year, hear about events, sports, awards, and learn about education trends and issues in Alberta. Occasionally, we plan to host a guest to present on special content.  Together through feedback provided and constructive discussion, school council plays an advisory role and can positively influence the delivery of elementary and high school education at Bentley School. It’s an opportunity to support our educators and staff, as well as build connections with your school, with other parents, and the greater community so that our children have the best possible education and school experience. All parents, guardians, and mature students are welcome to attend! Please note: Our school council executive positions are filled for the year, so there is no obligation to volunteer for a position.
