Parents’ Council is a group of volunteer parents and guardians whose primary focus is community engagement through activities and events which are designed to connect our parents, and strengthen our school community and belonging.
ANNUAL PC INITIATIVES
Each April, Parents’ Council hosts Spring Fair, a beloved Collingwood Tradition.
Families from both campuses celebrate at our Morven Campus for food and games, friendraising and fundraising.
Parents’ Council hosts lunch for the dedicated faculty and staff of Collingwood at two separate events on our Junior and Senior School Campuses.
This year, we brought in food trucks and celebrated Italian-style.
“The annual Teacher & Staff Appreciation Lunch is held at both campuses as a way to say thank you to all the wonderful people who make Collingwood so special for our students. Having the opportunity to organize this event on behalf of the entire Collingwood parent community is just one of the reasons why I love being part of the Collingwood Parents’ Council.”
Grade-wide Coffee Mornings and the Summer Buddy Program
Each fall, we host grade-wide coffee mornings–a great opportunity to engage with PC and ask any questions you may have about the coming year, events or volunteer opportunities.In the summer we also run a New Family Summer Buddy program. New families to Collingwood are matched with an existing "Buddy Family" at Collingwood who has a child in the same grade.
This is a terrific opportunity for current families to give back to our wonderful school, by helping to make the transition for new families a welcoming and memorable experience.
