A.H. Dakin School is fortunate to have a very active Parent Council. The Parent Council fund raises to provide enhanced school experiences for all of the children. The Council often finances programs like Science in Motion and raising butterflies as well as providing materials like the Lego technical kits. Examples of fine arts supports are Trickster Theatre and other events such as Alberta Touring Opera and Hoja singers. Supports for physical activity include providing skates and helmets for skating trips. The Council also provides funding for educational field trips to places like the Provincial Museum and Switzer Park. Special events like Fun Day and regular add-ons, like the milk program and hot meals are the purview of these involved parents. Wherever school life is enhanced, the Parent Council is there with energy and enthusiasm.
Dakin Parent Council meets are at 1:30 pm in room 17 on the first Tuesday of each month.
