Special Events

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 at Parkallen:


Welcome Back & Meet The Teacher BBQ - Parents and staff collaboratively plan a family event that includes a Barbecue and a chance to meet our School Staff.  This BBQ 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.

Christmas 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. A popular spring event.

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.
