We want to keep you updated on our fundraising activities, events and PAC news. Visit us often and let us know what you think.

PAC Purpose and Membership

Did you know that as a parent or a guardian of a student at Aspenwood you are automatically a member of the school's Parent Advisory Council (aka PAC)? The purpose of the PAC is to:

  • Discuss parents' views and provide input/feedback about our school programs, activities and goals
  • Work collaboratively with school staff to enrich and enhance our children's education
  • Raise funds to support school goals and provide equal opportunity

Volunteer Opportunities

The Aspenwood PAC would like to thank all the parents, guardians and volunteers that help make our PAC a success. Your support is greatly appreciated!

We are always looking for volunteers, whether it is for hot lunch sorting, movie nights, staff appreciation day, Grade 5 Leaving Committee, etc. Please email the PAC executive team at and let's find a way for you to get involved!

Monthly PAC Meetings

The PAC Executive team hosts monthly PAC meetings with our principal, Ms Close, in attendance to provide updates and answer your questions. Meetings are held in the Aspenwood Library Learning Commons from 7pm-8:30pm.
