Who We Are

The St. Bonaventure’s College Parent Auxiliary (PA) is comprised of elected parent volunteers (who serve as class representatives and members at large) as well as members of the administration and teaching staff. A four member executive is also elected during the PA’s Annual General Meeting/Election held in October. The PA usually meets monthly on a Tuesday evening to discuss issues and plan events.
