About PAC

You are a part of the Norquay PAC

PAC stands for Parent Advisory Council. The PAC is a group of parents that advises the school board, school administration and staff on things related to John Norquay Elementary school in East Vancouver.  If you are a parent/guardian of a child who goes to Norquay Elementary, you are a member of the PAC.

PAC does things like:

  • works with the school to build a strong community;
  • applies for and receives casino fund grant (only available if school has a valid PAC);
  • provides hot lunch services to the school and raises funds for the school so the school can buy items they would not otherwise have (i.e. school playgrounds, computer equipment, books for the library, learning materials, musical equipment, supplement classroom supplies and field study fees, PE supplies, fine arts performance etc.).

An elected group of parents called the PAC Executive act as advocates for your concerns and issues and help in building the school community.
