Mandatory parent involvement outside the classroom: As a parent run organization, volunteering outside the classroom is mandatory for our families, with many opportunities that help our school run smoothly and allow parents to engage with the classroom. These include roles on the Executive Committee, the Special Events teams, to making playdough. Open volunteer positions are filled annually at the Annual General Meeting of the Parent Advisory Council (PAC) held in June for the upcoming school year.
