One of the goals of the PAC is to help create a friendly school environment that is comfortable for both parents and children. Getting to know the parents of the school enriches the learning environment for both the parent and the child, and helps create invaluable connections with each other.
PAC stands for Parent Advisory Council. All parents and guardians of students registered at Ladysmith Primary School are members of the PAC – whether they are involved in PAC activities or not.
Before that meeting is an SPC (School Planning Council) meeting from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. (when required). Babysitting is provided by the PAC.
Every month there is a PAC meeting for about 1½ hours, starting at 7:00 p.m. It is usually the third Wednesday of every month.
The primary mandate of the PAC is to promote effective communication between home and school. The PAC encourages parents to participate in meaningful activities and decision making to strengthen the role of families in education and schooling and to foster meaningful parent participation.
