Parent Support Group

Parents are an integral part of the parish and school community in Port Alberni.

What is Parent Support Group

Parents are encouraged to take part in activities at St. John Paul II Catholic School.

Parents provide the needed leadership for special activities such as socials, fund-raisers, and other community building events. The Parents’ Support Group acts under the direction of the School Council. Meetings are held once a month.


Anyone who is a parent or guardian of a student at St. John Paul II Catholic School can belong to the Parent Support Group.



Monthly hot lunches are a favourite fundraiser. Others include seasonal sales, raffles, and bake sales. Social events include family potluck dinners, a Christmas shopping day for students, and family BBQs in the fall and spring.

The Parent Support Group uses their funds to pay for Winter Wonderland Skating, St.JPII Achievement medallions, and field trip costs. Each year a project for fundraising has been selected. Large purchases include playground equipment.

The parents at St. John Paul II Catholic School are hard working people committed to helping our school be a place where student’s “learn, serve, lead and succeed”. We enjoy working with one another and invite any and all parents to become more involved in this worthwhile opportunity.
