Parent Advisory Council
​​
How do I become involved in my child's school?  
 
Parent Advisory Councils are the formal "voice" of parents to provide input to schools in British Columbia.  All parents/guardians of children attending each school are automatically members of this important council.  
 
It is our hope that all of our parents will get involved in this important group.  At Ecole George Pringle Elementary, monthly meetings and other activities are planned and organized by your executive.
 

The PAC is dedicated to the education and well being of the child.  The primary mandate of the PAC shall be to promote and support education, to contribute to a sense of community, to encourage effective communication between home and school, to foster meaningful parent participation, and to strengthen the role of families in educational activities and decision making in the school.




PARENT ADVISORY COUNCIL
 
The École George Pringle School Parent Advisory Council (P.A.C.) is a group of parents who volunteer their time to help out at our school. The function of the P.A.C. is to provide an avenue for parental input regarding the operation and administration of our school. Parental attendance and participation is encouraged at the P.A.C. meetings. Occasionally parent in-service sessions, led by guest speakers, are held in conjunction with the P.A.C. meetings to provide parents with such opportunities as continuing education in parenting skills and promoting the wellbeing of our children. If you have any questions or concerns please email us at: georgepringlepac@gmail.com


What does our PAC do:

-    provides assistance with curricular and extra-curricular activities
-    coordinates a hot lunch program
