Community Council

The Second Street Community and Parent Advisory Council (CPAC) was established to:

  • assist the school staff in the pursuit of quality education;
  • foster communication between parents and school;
  • work for physical, cultural, educational, and recreational improvement within a diverse community;
  • provide opportunities for all people residing, working or having an interest in the area bordered by Newcombe on the west, 6th Street on the east, 10th Avenue on the south, and on the north by Robert Burnaby Park;
  • develop and sustain a feeling of community spirit and to utilize the school and neighbourhood facilities for fostering this spirit;
  • serve as a sponsoring body for community and school activities, events, and programs; and
  • facilitate coordination and cooperation among agencies and organizations in the delivery of community services.

The CPAC (often referred to as either Council or CPAC) operates as a non-profit organization guided by its Constitution and Bylaws updated in 2019. https://secondstreet.burnabyschools.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/2019-2nd-Street-Community-School-Council-Constitution.pdf
