What is the West Island College Parent “Guild”?
The West Island College (WIC) Parent Guild represents the volunteer interests of students, parents, alumni, the Board of Directors, faculty, staff and other community members with a demonstrated interest in the school. The WIC Parent Guild originated with the Parent Advisory Council (PAC) when the school was first created.
The PAC was refocused in 2019 and rebranded the WIC Parent Guild in order to serve as the volunteer hub that supports the strategic direction of WIC. The WIC Parent Guild works to enrich the lives of WIC students by providing unique elements that will enhance their physical, social, and general well-being.
How do I become a member of the WIC Parent Guild?
As a parent of a WIC student, you can become a member of the Guild when you register your child. Throughout the year, parents are welcome to volunteer for a variety of school events. The WIC Parent Guild has created a volunteer database to match skills and interests. These events and opportunities will evolve as the volunteer program matures in alignment with the school’s needs.
