The PA Needs Your Help

Do you want to be an active part of parent activities in school?

New School Year.. New PA Committee!

After almost 2 years with the same Chairperson the chair is now free for another parent! Do you want to be a part of the decisions-making process with a team of enthusiastic parents behind you? Let us know and let’s talk about it!

We also need one more Vice-Chairperson, supporting the chairperson and collecting all the input from the Committee.

Are you more interested in working in the background writing minutes, organising meetings and supporting the committee? Then Secretary could be something for you!

Maybe you are interested in how the transportation of the children is organised, and would like to help improve that? Why not be the new Transportation Contact?

We need active parents to help with different activities – especially the events in school. Depending on how much time you are willing to give, we need Events Coordinator(s), parents for the Events Team and Active Members that are willing to lend a hand – to be asked when needed from event to event.

Do you speak French & English and would like to (help) run the Francophone Events in school?

Are you a JRC or EMA staff member or spouse? Be one of our Contact Persons!

Questions – or want to hear more? Please get in touch! We would be very happy to talk about how you can support us in supporting our children and the school!
