CEC Canada's High School Student Council

CEC Canada’s Student Council parallels its Parent Teacher’s Association, its concerns in general are the same. The true difference is, that it is headed and run by University students focused on the well being of University students.

The Parent Teacher’s Association as a model.

The Parent Teacher’s Association was originally formed to give parents a way to deal with issues they saw as being a hindrance to the raising of children. Parent Teacher’s Associations have had and still do have one thing in mind and in common, that is to speak on behalf of children and youth before those who are involved in making decisions affecting the lives of children, through their efforts and good work they have in a number of places gained the legal right to question and to advise those involved in the education and well being of children, it must be said, their performance has brought them to a level were they are looked to for input even prior to making final decisions. In Canada they are called Parent Advisory Councils. Today the need for the involvement of the PTA has if anything intensified. When we see what is creeping into our public schools, and when we read such books as “the dumbing down of America’s kids”  and “the Freefall of the American University” we can readily see the need for parent advisory councils. In view of all this CEC Canada is committed to having parents form an association, and as such be involved with CEC Canada in its decision processes to ensure that students will not be short changed.

The mission of the Parent Teachers Association:

1. To support and speak on behalf of children and youth in CEC Canada’s schools and churches, as well before other organizations that make decisions affecting the lives of children, e.g. governmental agencies.
2. To assist parents in developing skills they need to raise and protect their children.
3. To encourage overall parent involvement in the formative years of their children, whether in school or out of school.

The purposes of the Association: 

1. To promote the welfare of children and youth in home, school, community, and place of worship.
2. To raise the standards of home life.
3. To secure adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth.
4. To bring into closer relation the home and the school, that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of children and youth.
5. To develop between CEC Canada’s educators and those they are called to serve such united efforts as will secure for all children and youth, the highest advantages in physical, mental, social, and spiritual education.

What is left?

1. Delegating one of CEC Canada’s Authoritative leaders to oversee the process of establishing the Society. 2. Calling parents. 3. Election of Directors. 3.

CEC Canada is intent on working with Student Councils as they really are doing what CEC Canada wants in the first place, that is to give its students the opportunity to reach their true and godly potential.
