    Parent Advisory Council - PAC

    The Shamrock Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is open to all parents of Shamrock students. As a volunteer-run, non-profit organization, we promote inclusion and respectful collaboration in order to improve the school environment for our Shamrock students and staff. This includes fundraising to enhance the overall student experience with playground enhancements, school improvements and student learning support and activities. We strive to provide timely communications with our parents and community members. We also act as a liaison between the school, parents, LRSD school board and other organizations relating to the school division. 

    The Shamrock PAC is always looking for more members. If you want to know more about what is going on at the school and have some time and/or ideas to contribute about how we can shape and benefit the school, we would encourage you to attend a meeting or send us an email (

    You can also keep up-to-date on PAC information and activities through our social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram.
