Hello Garibaldi community! We are the Garibaldi Communications Committee.

What we do:

It’s our aim to foster efficient and effective communication supporting parent/student initiatives, Parent Advisory Committee business and broader community involvement where appropriate.

How we do it:

• Liaise between PAC committees and PAC executive, the school administration and parents;
• Act as a conduit for broader community outreach when and where appropriate;
• Keep parent notice boards, confidential parent contact lists and PAC related email/web pages up to date;
• Ensure the PAC portion of the newsletter is submitted each month to school administration.

To the Parents of K-4, Home Learning and VLN Students of Garibaldi Annex - An important request about the Playground

The fund raising efforts for the new playground have been a great success.
The people who have contributed as donors and organizers have done a fantastic job of making the playground a reality and I would like to thank you all for your contributions. As we are approaching the final installment we require one more fund raising effort. To meet our final goal we request a suggested donation of $20 per student. A tax receipt will be issued for donations of $25 or more. We ask for this contribution as a way to minimize fund-raising costs, so that all funds go directly towards the final payment. It also enables parents to get a tax receipt for deduction on their 2010 income tax.
