Byng Elementary School


Parent Advisory Council

The staff and parents at Lord Byng believe that an effective school is one in which parents and the community support the school. Parents are encouraged to participate in various school activities by sharing their skills, talents and time. We value all contributions which parents make as it enhances the educational experience of all of our children.

What is PAC?

The primary purposes of Parent Advisory Council's are to:

  • Provide a forum for consultation between the school and parents on matters of general concern to the school community,
  • Assist with and contribute to various school related activities,
  • Promote the development of positive school-community relations.

All parents of the school are members of the Parent Advisory Council. We encourage you to attend our meetings along with the School Administration and Parent Executive. PAC works in a variety of ways for the benefit of students, staff and the school community. We aim to communicate with parents about school events and programs; communicate with school staff on behalf of parents; provide opportunities for parent education; raise funds for school equipment, projects and activities; and to organize social events to promote the development of a healthy school community.
