Chimney Hill

working together to encourage learning, respect for others, and personal growth




Hello Parents & Guardians of the students of Chimney Hill, 

I apologize for the delay in the October PAC meet update.

We will be hosting a General PAC meet 
(Link to be provided closer to date & time) 

As always, everyone is welcome and all parents are eligible to vote on PAC decisions. Note you must attend the meeting to vote in the selection of the Executive positions or budget decisions.
We would love to have as many parents and guardians come out and see what PAC is all about.  By attending you are not committing to anything. This is great way to get informed about the upcoming school year and PAC activities.  It is an opportunity to hear from our school principal, Ms. Colgate and our vice principal, Ms. Boyer as well. 
As a PAC, we believe communication and unity in our school is a key component for our school's success. 

The agenda for upcoming meeting is available here.
The minutes of our September meeting are available here.

As many of you may already know, our PAC is currently without a Treasurer and we are actively seeking for a new parent and/or guardian to take on this role. For more details on what this position entails, please contact PAC directly. 

Hope to 'see' you all Wednesday,

Raj Dhaliwal
Chimney Hill Parent Advisory Council

If you are interested in getting more involved with the PAC, contact me, Raj Dhaliwal, at  I often hear people say "I don't have the time", "I work full-time", "I'm too busy" but the overall commitment is much less than most people think, and the rewards are much greater! 

As always, everyone is welcome and all parents are eligible to vote on PAC decisions. Note you must attend the meeting to vote in the selection of the Executive positions or budget decisions.

If you have any other questions about the PAC, please contact Raj Dhaliwal, Chimney Hill PAC Chair, at

Frequently Asked Questions about the PAC?

What is the PAC anyway?

  • The Parents Advisory Council or PAC is simply a group of Chimney Hill Parents who work together to help support our children's school. By hosting and/or volunteering at school events, we try to enrich the Chimney Hill community and help provide funding to make our kids' experience at Chimney Hill great. By just having a PAC, we receive approximately $16,000 per year in government funding that can be used for extra-curricular school activities and events. We supplement this with our own fundraising, and with input and advice from the school administration, we decide how best to spend these funds. These decisions are made by the parents who attend the monthly PAC meetings. 

Who can attend PAC meetings?

  • All Chimney Hill parents and guardians are welcome to attend and eligible to vote on PAC decisions.

How many people normally attend?

  • Unfortunately, our meetings have been quite small considering the size of the school. Out of the over 500 families represented at Chimney Hill, our PAC meetings usually only have 10-15 people! It would be great to have more parents attend, get to know one another, learn about upcoming school events, and help decide how to spend PAC funding to make Chimney Hill the best it can possibly be for our kids.

Am I committing to anything by attending?

  • No. You are welcome to attend and just be informed.

Can I get more involved if I want to?

  • Absolutely! There are lots of ways to help with PAC events and school activities that can fit almost any schedule.

What if I can't attend the meetings?

  • If you can't attend the meeting in person, you can still receive email updates through this list and minutes from the most recent meetings. We also try to keep the PAC bulletin board near the Library up to date with recent minutes and financial reports. If you have any concerns, you can also bring them to any PAC executive member or email
