What is the Parents’ Guild?

 The purpose of the Parents’ Guild is to assist the School in providing students with educational and life enhancements throughout the year with our various friend-raising and fund-raising activities.

As a Trafalgar Parent/Guardian, you are an automatic member of the Parents’ Guild and we encourage you to attend any and all meetings. The Parents’ Guild holds three general meetings and one Annual General Meeting each school year.

The meetings are generally held at 7 p.m. in the Resource Centre at the School. Please refer to the School Calendar for meeting dates. Your guidance, energy and wealth of expertise is truly appreciated and we encourage you to volunteer.
