Parish Education Committee

Message from the PEC Chair

Welcome to Our Lady of Perpetual Help School.

My name is Kate Nemeth and I serve as the Chair of the Parish Education Committee (PEC), a board of volunteers authorized by the Archdiocese to act as the governing body that oversees the day-to-day operations of the school, in accordance with the CISVA Board’s regulations. The PEC makes decisions and sets policies with respect to the budget, operational, and financial management and maintenance of OLPH School.  I am also currently serving my second term on the CISVA Board and Chair of the Personnel Sub Committee.

The PEC recognizes that the physical, emotional, moral, and spiritual dimensions of human development stem from a personal synthesis of faith and life in each student. Thus, rooted in excellence in Catholic values, we aim to promote the development of the whole child to his or her potential, so they may become responsible leaders and citizens, and life-long learners.

We view the parish as a family of families, as one community. Through the school, the parish supports parents in their role as the primary educators of their children, especially in the transmission of the faith. As well, through the school, parents and children are linked to the wider community of the parish.  I am grateful to be a part of this wonderful community.

The PEC welcomes and encourage parents of Our Lady’s School to be actively involved in their children’s school through participation in councils, activities, committees, and regular collaboration with school staff, which enriches both the parish community and their children’s experience overall. Our PEC meetings are held monthly, and parents are welcome to attend.

If you would like to know more about the Parish Education Committee or have any questions or concerns, please email me at pec@olphbc.ca.

Sincerely,
Kate Nemeth
