Parents Council

The CBC Parents' Council is the representative body of parents in the college.

Partnership is the key to success in education. The parents' council seeks to enhance the positive experience of education for young people in a spirit of co-operation with all the educational partners. The council is elected by the parents of students attending the college, and meets monthly. Its role is advisory and consultative, providing a home-school link and helping the school to provide wider opportunities for the involvement of parents generally.

The  Parent Council AGM was held on 12th October 2017 and the following were elected to the Parents' Council for 2017/ 2018.
