The Tennyson PAC
The Tennyson Parent Advisory Council (PAC), is the organized body that lets Tennyson families get involved in school activities and influence the school culture. Funding for PAC activities comes from direct donations, the Gaming Grant and fundraising initiatives.
You are automatically a member of the Lord Tennyson PAC when your child is enrolled at the school. Anyone can put their name forward to be elected to the PAC Executive Committee. The PAC Exec is a friendly group of parents who meet about once a month to manage PAC-led activities and liaise with and support the school Admin.
A list of PAC Exec members with contact information is at the bottom of this page.
What does the Tennyson PAC do?
- Host regular meetings where parents can socialize and learn about/get involved in school activities
- Organize PAC-led events like the Welcome Back Barbecue and Halloween Howl
- Bring in external speakers to keep families informed on current trends relevant for families of elementary school students
