Special offer on laptops and software for CBE parents and students

As information becomes more digital, schools are changing the way they deliver education.  We are seeing more and more students using personal devices in school.  They are creating their assignments on computers and handing them in electronically. Tools like dictionaries, thesauri, and textbooks can be accessed digitally. Movies and documentaries can be viewed and reviewed independently.  A student with their own device has an advantage but they can be pricey.

CBE has negotiated a special offer for parents to purchase laptops and software for their children.  Ordering and pricing information are available on our vendors’ website. To take advantage of this opportunity, please visit:

Message from PE - GARAGE SALE

Are you looking for some extra outdoor equipment to play with this summer?  Well do we have a sale for you!  Bring in your toonies to the Phys.

Fee Waiver Applications for 2014-2015

Parents who are applying for a Fee Waiver for 2014-2015 can now apply either using the form available from the website or on-line.

Please note that if you are applying for a Waiver of Fees for ISM and Transportation, then you need to complete a School Bus Transportation Contract in addition to the Fee Waiver form.  Submitting all the correct information at the time of your application will avoid a delay in the processing of your claim.

The status of your application will also be available on-line.

The deadline date is June 26, 2014 at the Educational Centre and not the school.  Although applications will be accepted after this date, if you qualify for a waiver, you may not receive the full amount.

 Please note that the Application for Waivers is not handled by the school.
Thank you
