Our learning and community spirit are enhanced by Special Events. These can be evening social events or a learning focus we share school-wide for a day or a week. Some involve our parents and community; others include special guests to share their expertise. These are some of the events we have had at Parkallen over the years. The activities may vary each year, depending on staff, student and community interests.
Welcome Back & Meet The Teacher - This is a family event that includes a chance to meet our School Staff and have a look around the school. This event is typically held in early September. It is a great chance to re-connect and to meet new friends and neighbours.
Read In Week -The first week of October we invite our parents and community in to share their favourite stories and celebrate a love of Reading.
Winter Concert - All our students participate in this special performance that celebrates Christmas and other cultural celebrations from around the world.
Career Pathways Week - We will invite the community in during a week in April to build awareness of many different careers, and the many possible pathways children can experience on their way to a life of dignity and contribution.
Family Dance - In the spring, the parents plan a family dance with an engaging theme. We have great music, costume contests, treats, games and a chance to re-connect with friends and neighbours.
School Fun Day - At the end of the year, children gather in cross-graded or class groups and travel through many stations to play games! A fun and active day in the sun.
