WPGA’s Parent Volunteer Group (PVG) is an integral part of WPGA's longstanding culture of giving and volunteerism. The PVG organizes community-building events and fundraises for school programs. The PVG's mission is to
- Promote and maintain communication between the PVG and the school community
- Enhance our children’s experience at the school
- Encourage parents to volunteer, fundraise and promote a strong school community
The PVG coordinates many school community events, such as the Gala, Toonie Sale and Sports Day, and fundraises for facility improvements and enriched programs, such as robotics, debate and Connected North programs; athletic gear, band and choir uniforms; iPads and student devices; and outdoor education and science equipment. The 2018 Gala, for example, raised over $550,000 for a new STEM lab in the Junior School and design lab in the Senior School, to be completed over summer 2018. A smaller portion was dedicated to the Student Wishlist, smaller-scale projects that have a big impact on the student experience. Ways to Volunteer:
The PVG offers many volunteer opportunities and committees, such as crosswalk and playground supervision, library support, New Parent Liaison Committee, the Gala, the Toonie Sale, Lost & Found, and the Teacher-Staff Appreciation Luncheon. We encourage you to get involved whenever and however you are able!
