Parent Advisory Council (P.A.C.)
The Parent Advisory Council is made up of a volunteer group of parents of the children in a school. All parents, who have children enrolled in a school, are automatically members of the school’s P.A.C. This group meets once a month and works with the school staff to improve school conditions. The council supports the school philosophy through various committees and projects. All parents are welcome to attend.

PAC Year in Review 2015-2016
Due to generous community support, PAC has been able to help enrich our children’s experiences at school.
PAC initiatives include: Back to School Tea, Hot Lunch, BC Fruit and Veggie Program, Santa Breakfast, Brentwood Spirit Wear, Spring Sock Hip-Hop, Staff Appreciation Luncheon and Grade 7 Celebrations. PAC’s fundraisers include: Hot Lunch, Direct Drive, Gift Baskets and Raffle at the Winter Concert, Pies and Cookies, Gift Cards, Popcorn Sales and the Plant Sale.
These fundraisers have enabled PAC to offer financial support by providing: $150 to each teacher toward classroom expenses, $300 to each division for fieldtrip school buses, 4 classroom projectors (thus completing the Tech Plan), Buses for Whistler Ski School, each classroom with emergency food and water, presentations by Dufflebag Theatre and Saleema Noon, support for Traffic Safety Program, Grade 7 Dance and Luncheon and new intermural pinnies. All of our children benefit from these initiatives and they could not take place without generous volunteers and supporters.
