QUESNEL – The Quesnel and District Parent Advisory Council and 19 Parent Advisory Councils in Quesnel, 150 Mile House, Big Lake, Horsefly, and Nazko Valley will share a total of $74,720 in Community Gaming Grants from the Ministry of Community, Sport, and Cultural Development this year.
Why this matters:
- Parent Advisory Councils (PACs) use the gaming grant funding to support a wide range of student services, including extra-curricular activities, student travel, playground and sports equipment, as well as scholarships and bursaries.
- Across British Columbia, over 1,400 Parent Advisory Councils and District Parent Advisory Councils (DPACs) will share almost $11 million in Community Gaming Grants this year.
- PAC grants are based on the respective schools’ student enrolment and are paid annually at $20 per student.
- District Parent Advisory Councils each receive $2,500 a year to fund educational and promotional materials, administrative costs, and assist communication among schools, parents, students, and the community.
- District parent advisory councils are composed of members from each PAC in a district.
