Administrative history

A meeting was held at South Canoe School March 20/1957 to form a parents’ auxiliary, whose aim would be to help supply school ground and sports equipment for the new South Canoe School. Group first known as “Hits and Mrs” and sometimes “Hits and Misses”, later as “South Canoe School Aid” and finally as South Canoe Parent Advisory Committee.

The South Canoe Parent Advisory Committee appears to have adopted the mission “to create a caring place where members of our school community take satisfaction in realizing their maximum potential as contributing individuals in a changing world.”

The Shuswap School District No. 89’s policy manual outlines the parameters of the Parent Advisory Committee. The committee’s function is to form a link between the school and community. The PAC is prohibited from criticising individual school personnel, students or parents.

The South Canoe Parent Advisory Fonds is incomplete, contains some minutes and some organizational paper. It appears to have been active in several school programmes including: class swim lessons and street proofing its student population. It facilitated the purchase of student bike helmets, computers and playground equipment for the school, held hot dog sales and sold school t-shirts. This group participated actively in South Canoe School’s fifty year celebration and the centennial anniversary of schools in the South Canoe Creek district.

The South Canoe PAC was disbanded with the closure of South Canoe Elementary School in June 2003.
