Parent Advisory Committee
Welcome to Forrest Parent Advisory Council section! At Forrest PAC, we believe that education is a shared responsibility between the home, the school and the community. Supportive parents/guardians, caring educators and active community members are partners in education working together for the benefit of children.
Forrest PAC has been dedicated to supporting our many Timberwolves teams with canteen services during hosted sports events throughout each school year. We are often in need of parent volunteers and baked goods for these events. As our Timberwolves rely on canteen services to allow for hosting other teams; should you have children participating in these sporting events, please let us know if you are able to help in any way!
Please see below for further details about PAC, its commitments to our school and how you can help give back to our wonderful school. Should you be interested in becoming involved or volunteering, please either contact the school office or feel free to contact me directly.
