Parent Advisory Committee

To all the Parents of Mt. Sentinel Students:

What is PAC?

A group that is made up of parents to discuss school issues, goals and the well-being of the students in Mount Sentinel. This is a place where parents can ask questions, voice concerns and speak to other parents. This is a great place to learn about what is going on in the school, education in general and what the future of education holds for your child. The PAC Members also discuss and decide on how the annual Gaming Grant is distributed for non-academic activities in our school.  We encourage parents to come out and listen and see what makes Mount Sentinel tick! This is a great forum to learn more about this great school.

NOTE: This is not a fund raising group for those parents concerned about this. PAC does sell the Passport to the Kootenay’s coupon books in order to raise money for a $500 bursary to be awarded to a graduate (chosen anonymously). We aim for two or more bursaries a year. The application is available with the school counselor.
