Welcome to the 2021-22 school year!

On behalf of the St. Cyril Parent Council welcome to a new school year!

St. Cyril’s Catholic School Parent Council (CSPC) is made up of parent volunteers, along with teacher representatives, the Principal and other community members who all work together to enhance the school experience for the students.

Our parent council’s fundraising abilities are limited this year with our annual BBQ being cancelled. In order to raise funds, we are asking for a one-time donation as we have in the past. CSPC is a registered charity and tax receipts will be provided for all donations.

Please fill in this form to DONATE.

With your donation we can contribute to providing classroom support funding for teachers, student agendas, in-class events (such as “Scientists in the School”) and field trips. More information can be found here.

We need your help to achieve these goals!

If possible, we encourage you to complete your contribution by November 19th, 2021 to allow for proper budgeting and allocation of the funds to be spent throughout the year.

Have a great 2021/22 school year and we encourage you to get involved and hope to see you at our future council meetings.

Family Event: Bounce Back families, March 16th, 6:30pm

The St. Cyril CSPC would like to invite you to a virtual presentation by Sara Westbrook on Tuesday, March 16th at 6.30 pm. With the stress and uncertainty many families are facing today the speaker shares strategies to help families ‘bounce back’ from challenging circumstances. The event is geared toward both parents and students and families are encouraged to watch together.

Even though the event is fully funded by the CSPC we ask that families register through this Eventbrite Invitation. Registration deadline is Sunday March 14th and the link will be emailed on the day before the event to those who registered.

Hope everyone can attend!

Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!

We are going paperless…

Be notified about Pizza Days, spiritwear, parent engagement opportunities, virtual events, meetings and all Parent Council initiatives.

Dear parents, please register even if you have registered in the past and are receiving CSPC emails.  

Who we are 

St. Cyril’s Catholic School Parent Council (CSPC) is made up of parent volunteers, along with teacher representatives, the principal and other community members who all work together to enhance the school experience for the students.

What has changed 

COVID 19 has placed restrictions on what activities and experiences our children can have during school hours.  Our intention is to find creative solutions and innovative ideas to support our school and enhance the learning experience.  We know that field trips and activities like scientists in the school will likely not be safe to enjoy this year.  However we have found ways to deliver virtual field trips or virtual workshops that classes would benefit from that even our families in the virtual model could participate in with their St. Cyril classmates. 

What we can do 

Last year CSPC donated 3 smart TVs to the school (one for every floor). They have been a very successful addition to the delivery of programming amongst all classes.  This year our goal is to equip all 13 classrooms with a smart TV by December.  This way, all students would have the opportunity to attend virtual masses, assemblies, workshops etc. Accessible technology will enable our school to remain safely connected and engaged while classes still remain in their cohorts.  We have the opportunity to transform our traditional classrooms into 21st century classrooms with technology. 

How we can do this

Our parent councils fundraising abilities are limited with our annual BBQ being cancelled and we are trying to work on the logistics to safely hold pizza days (stay tuned). We are asking for a one time donation as we have in the past. More details can be found on the Fundraising page.


Why Register 

As parents supporting an eco school we are conscious of our paper consumption.  We will no longer be sending any paper notices and letters home. We will be moving all collection of donations or sales of spiritwear to cash online, e-Transfers and online forms of payment.  Please register here so you have all the information you need.
