Welcome to the Parent Advisory Council For Our School

We are a group of parents who support our children's educational experience at Gilmore by volunteering to support the school in a variety of ways. You are welcome to join us at our monthly PAC meetings, along with the school Principal, Mr.Shuto. Hear the latest on what's happening at Gilmore, discuss ideas and ask questions. Through meetings, newsletters, meeting minutes and our Facebook group, there is an active effort to keep all parents informed and involved in school activities.
Contact us if you would like to be a volunteer or become involved in another way. Together, we are the Gilmore community!


What we do:  


  • Assist with organizing and contributing money towards school related activities.  For example:  Ultimate frisbee weeklong workshops, babysitting and first-aid courses for Grades 6&7,  Body Science workshops.


  • Promote communication, co-operation and a forum for dialogue between home and school.


  • Fundraise throughout the year to put towards the school's wish list; Things like music stands and gym mats and to subsidize field trips to make them more affordable or even free for families.   


  • Coordinate the Hot Lunch days


  • Offer staff-appreciation lunches and staff treats throughout the year
