Parents' Guild

Parents' Guild

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, purchasing a hot lunch for your child, or being a member of the PG Executive.

The funds we raise go directly into School programs. With the help of the entire Sacred Heart community, the Parents’ Guild was able to contribute over $52,000 in 2017-18 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 School 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 and we will do our best to answer any questions you have about SHSH from a parent’s perspective.
