The Parent Support Group (“PSG”) performs two vital functions for Cathedral School, which are both summed up in the word ‘support’. The PSG has its website located at https://sites.google.com/cathedralschool.ca/psg/
Firstly, we support the School and each other by uniting the parents as a body, providing channels of communication, welcoming new parents, holding social events, and encouraging volunteerism.
Secondly, we support the School by raising funds in a variety of ways. These funds are typically spent on upgrading school equipment, i.e. new playground surfacing, new set of audio/visual equipment, new early warning earthquake alarm system. The funds are also spent on friend-raising experiences, such as the Christmas Pot Luck Dinner, Shrove Tuesday Panacake Breakfast and the Grade 8 Graduation.
We elect an executive and meet on a regular basis through the year. The Head of School works closely with the PSG. All parents and/or guardians are automatically members of the PSG and are encouraged to attend meetings and get involved in the activities of the group.
The PSG is a vital part of the community of CCCS. A successful and vibrant group can make all the difference to the School, helping morale, increasing the sense of community, enhancing the educational opportunities and thereby helping to make the education of all the children more positive and rewarding.
