Parent Advisory Council

All parents of St. Ignatius students are invited members of the St. Ignatius School Parent Advisory Council (SISPAC). You’re encouraged to meet our Executive Committee and become involved in SISPAC activities and meetings.


The St. Ignatius School Parent Advisory Council (SISPAC) exists to fulfill the following aims: 

  • To work within the school and Parish community to foster strong and positive relationships and good communication between the school staff, the students, the parent community, and the parish community. 
  • To assist in the school’s ability to deliver quality educational and life experiences through fundraising and community-building. 
  • To host and assist with events and extra-curricular activities. 
  • To fulfill the role of the school’s Parent Advisory Council (PAC) as legislated by the Government of Manitoba, and as governed by the Manitoba Department of Education. 

As the PAC of St. Ingatius School, SISPAC must:

  • Provide a formal vehicle for parents to communicate with the Principal and/or the Board of Directors on matters of general interest to the parent body, as well as to advise and inform the parent body regarding activities of the Board of Directors and/or school staff that are of general concern to the parent community. 


The elected Executive Committee is at the core of SISPAC, while all other parents are invited members.

  • Every parent of a child attending St. Ignatius School is a member of SISPAC.
  • All parents are encouraged to attend and become involved in SISPAC activities and meetings.
  • The SISPAC Executive Committee is nominated and elected from the general membership to serve the school community. The Elected Executive Committee meets the governmental requirements for elected members on a PAC.

Volunteer Opportunities

SISPAC hosts various events and fundraisers throughout the year to support the school and build community.  In the past we have contributed to the purchase of gym equipment, gym upgrades (such as painting) and purchasing musical instruments and books for the library.  Our aim is to facilitate program enhancements within the school that benefit as many of our children as possible.  The time, generosity and support of our parents is what makes our events successful and helps strengthen our school community.
