Every parent or guardian of a child in Blakeburn is a member of the PAC, and is thus invited to attend these meetings, and participate in policy and spending decisions.
At our general meetings, we firstly approve the agenda and the minutes from the previous meeting. The principal then delivers a report that includes special notices to parents, feedback from past events, representations from the teaching staff, and information on future plans that involve school parents. Finally, each of the executive members report back on their respective portfolios. Discussions, suggestions and feedback are encouraged throughout the meeting.
A PAC meeting is NOT a forum for the discussion of individual school personnel, students, parents, or other individual members of the school community.
The meeting starts at 6:30pm and our goal is to be done by 8-8:15pm.
We meet in the Blakeburn school library. If you don't have child care, your children are welcome to use the space in the technology center during the meeting for colouring, reading or other quiet activities.
The annual PAC budget is available for viewing by PAC members (parents & guardians of Blakeburn students) by request. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
