The PAC receives revenue from three primary sources:
- Provincial Gaming Grant
- PAC Levy
- Multicultural LunchThe bulk of these funds are used to support our Wish List, including student scholarships. For more information on our Wish List, please view the Wish List page.
During the school year the PAC may host other fund raising events for specific projects. These will be listed under the “News and Announcements” on this page as well as the PAC Events, Projects and Committees page.
Provincial Gaming Grant
Every year the PAC applies to the B.C. Government for a Gaming Grant. Gaming Grant funds must be used to directly support students by enhancing their extracurricular opportunities (e.g. clubs, sports, scholarships, bike racks, etc.). Over ½ of our revenue for Wish List items comes from the Gaming Grant.
Included in your student’s school fees is a $25.00 PAC Levy. These funds provide over 1/3 of our yearly revenue and also go to supporting our Wish List. Unlike Gaming Grant funds, these funds have no spending restrictions and we are able to use these funds for items in the classroom (e.g. dictionaries, globes, eReaders, etc.) as well as extracurricular. The PAC Levy is a very important source of revenue and we appreciate the contributions given by parents over the years.
Our remaining funds come from our yearly Multicultural Lunch (MCL) event. The MCL is terrifically popular with the kids, who love tasting cuisines from around the world. An important social event at the school, it promotes diversity and inclusion within the school community.
