Finance

The St. Cyril Catholic School Parent Council (CSPC) raises money to enhance your child’s school experience by supporting various activities throughout the school year.  Funds are raised through three distinct means:

  1. St Cyril Foundation:  Registered charity to accept donations and provide tax receipts
  2. CSPC: Fund raising through school commmunity activities including a Welcome BBQ/Fair and pizza lunches

At the beginning of each school year, the finance committee develops a budget for the school year with input from the council, the principal and teachers.  The budget is presented and approved at one of the first few council meetings of the school year.  The finance committee manages the funds and expenditures based on the approved budget as well as updating for any new activities that are approved by the Council.  This is done via a motion and vote at a CSPC meeting.  The finance committee reports monthly to the CSPC on the actual financial statements compared to the budget.  The finance committee also provides expert advice and will advise the CSPC on financial matters.
