    What committees are you involved in within the SGPA?
    Saints Spirit Run (Co-Chair), Teacher & Staff Appreciation

    Why did you join the SGPA?
    When my sons were accepted to St. George's, I realized that we will be raising our children for the next 12 or so years alongside the families in my sons' grades. We believe that the stronger we make our connection to the school community, the more meaningful our time at St. George's will be. The SGPA is such a vibrant community. It really is a creative and dynamic collection of parents who believe in giving back with the goal of providing opportunities to families of St. George's to contribute and connect. The SGPA is a bunch of very fun people with a serious purpose.

    What committees are you involved in within the SGPA?

    Why did you join the SGPA?
    I jumped at the chance to join the SGPA when I saw an opening with my skill set. But more importantly, it was an opportunity to join a board with a mission to give back to the School and to support the ongoing development of the St. George's Community. It was just what I needed to proactively give back in a way that would impact my boys’ time at Saints. The St. George's Community extends beyond the School walls, and has an ongoing impact for all faculty, staff, students, parents and alumni.

Our school is stronger because of its community and that strength translates into a much more meaningful experience for our boys and extends beyond the walls of our school.

    Why did you join the SGPA?
    I was happy to be asked to join this motivated team of volunteers working to develop opportunities to allow parents to engage with the St. George's Community. I personally enjoy volunteering at Saints because it makes me feel more connected to the School. Specifically, working with BoyOBoy in a year when we were all so isolated felt like it was meeting the dual purpose of bringing compelling speakers to the parent community and keeping families connected.

    What committees are you involved in within the SGPA?
    Back to School BBQ, Multicultural Potluck, Saints Soirée

    Why did you join the SGPA?
    Being a new parent at Saints when my elder son Travis was first accepted, I felt warmly welcomed by the community. Two years later, I became a new parent again for my younger son Tristen. I wanted to make other parents feel the same way I felt. That's why I joined the SGPA when I got the offer. I have been a Grade Parent since we started at St. George’s, and have volunteered in many school events. I have always felt a great sense of reward and honour in doing this job. Thank you so much for this amazing opportunity.

    What committees are you involved in within the SGPA?
    Back to School Welcome, St. George’s School Fair (Communications), Saints Soirée 

    Why did you join the SGPA?
    Volunteering at St. George’s School on a regular basis for the first four years of our son’s journey, always felt so rewarding to me, and the appreciation from everyone was abundant.
    I knew that joining the SGPA would allow me to meet and work with more like-minded parents, in a fun and productive atmosphere. The SGPA pulls together to engage and enrich our community’s connection, enhancing family experiences, and encouraging the achievement of new personal goals, with the partnership of the School.
    The invaluable opportunity to be part of our vibrant and welcoming SGPA, and by participating in the coordination of activities that promote the advancement of our boys, will undoubtedly support my families’ development and community involvement, alongside our son’s journey to Graduation.

    Saints Spirit Run (Co-Chair), Teacher & Staff Appreciation

    Why did you join the SGPA?
    We returned to Vancouver in 2019 after 23 years away and fell into the Saints Community. We were so warmly welcomed, it felt like we had never been away. I quickly got involved in volunteering for the Fair and Staff Appreciation Committees and becoming a GradeParent. How could I say no to the SGPA? An amazing group of parents working together tirelessly to put together fun and exciting school and community events for the boys, parents and staff.

I was Head Convenor of the virtual LOVE Fair in 2021 and I can honestly say the SGPA is an amazing group of dedicated parents who work endlessly to bring the community together.
