Jump to SPC meeting minutes

All parents are members of the School Parent Council. The SPC meets bi-monthly, usually on a Wednesday evening. Each year, the new officers will set the dates and times for the meetings, as well as any special meetings, presentations and events. Please check your e-mails from the JQS-PC 
Google group for meeting reminders! The SPC organizes family engagement events. Past events include apple picking, ice skating party, art festival, regular Friday morning coffee hours, and a family disco dance party. The SPC also organizes sales of DVD recordings of the school holiday concert and Chinese New Year celebration. 


The SPC officers were voted in at the annual Friendship Feast. 
Your 2017-18 officers are:   
  • Rekha Purwaha and John Walsh, Co-chair
  • Stig Bjornebye and Kelly Wang, Co-treasurers
  • Sonal Patel and Katie Liang, Co-secretaries
SPC Meetings:
- Parent Council meetings are usually held in the evenings with childcare
- SPC Executive Planning Committee meetings with Principal Soo Hoo are usually held after morning drop off or earlier
