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: firstname.lastname@example.org
