Parent Advisory Council (PAC)

The St. Andrews School Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is a committed group of parents/guardians who work with the school staff to support the educational and social aspects of all St. Andrews School students. We fundraise for school programming, resources and equipment, improvements to school areas such as the library and playground, staff recognition and more. All parents and guardians are welcome to join us in helping our children thrive at school.

Hot Lunches

Hot lunches for 2022/23 are now ready to order! We use the online ordering system, MunchaLunch, which lets parents/guardians easily place orders online and pay by credit card.

PAC runs the Hot Lunches program at the school as a fundraiser and as something fun and exciting for the students (and parents!) to look forward to.



Our PAC runs several fundraising initiatives each school year and has donated funds towards classroom materials and books, musical instruments and music resources, physical education equipment, playground equipment, and a full renovation of our school library, among other things. Watch this space for news about our next fundraiser.

Thank you to everyone who has supported our recent fundraisers!


In the Community

PAC's main target population is, of course, the school's students and staff. However, the school area, situated next door to the St. Andrews Community Club, encompasses much more than just the school itself.

Through the students and with the help of families, we, in fact, bring our community together in this historically important area. St. Andrews School, founded in 1827, is the oldest school in operation in Western Canada and is the largest elementary school in the Lord Selkirk School Division. It is also situated across the street from the oldest stone church in Western Canada - the St. Andrews on the Red, and next door to the historic St. Andrews Rectory, both which are designated heritage sites.

With such a history and strong community, PAC is working to enhance the recreational opportunities for the over 5,000 people that live in the South St. Andrews area. PAC's main goal is to help build our children's future so they can become healthy, strong, and educated individuals.
