Parent Auxiliary (PA)

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How can parents get involved in Queen of Angels School?
    Parents are an integral part of the parish and school community and are encouraged to take part in the activities of the school. Parents provide the leadership needed for special activities, fund-raisers, socials and other community building events. Queen of Angels has an active Parent Auxiliary  (PA) which functions under the direction of the School Council. A parent liaison representative facilitates communication between the two organizations. Meetings are held once a month.

Testimonials
We have been very happy with Queen of Angels School. The teachers are very supportive and it's a joy to see our children grow into their independent selves while being nurtured and encouraged. The uniform gives them a sense of pride and belonging. We also enjoy interacting with like-minded parents who show a commitment to their children's education.
