The Parents’ Guild at Sacred Heart School of Halifax (SHSH) has two primary goals: enhancing the SHSH school community and raising funds to support SHSH programs. Every Sacred Heart parent is a member of the Parents’ Guild. Participation in the Guild can include volunteering to help with an event, attending an event such as the Christmas Fair, or purchasing a hot lunch for your child.

The funds we raise go directly into School programs and are not used for operational expenses. With the help of the entire SHSH community, last year the Parents’ Guild was able to contribute over $52,000 for sports events, theatre productions, leadership conferences, various school clubs, art programs, and new gymnastics mats, among other items.

Whether you have 30 minutes, a few hours, or lots of great ideas to share, your investment in our SHSH community is welcome and makes our School and community better. Still have questions but not sure where to go for answers? The Parents’ Guild is here to help. Email us at parentsguild@shsh.caand we will do our best to answer any questions you have about SHSH from a parent’s perspective.
