Parent Advisory Council (PAC)

The mission of the Carihi Secondary Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is to engage, empower and support our parents, our students, our school, and our community, for the success of all students. Our goal is to improve communication and understanding, provide functional and financial support to our Carihi community, and afford the Carihi community an opportunity to address issues directly impacting our school, in a culture of acceptance, inclusion and equity.

The Carihi PAC is looking for new members.  
If you have any questions please contact: or attend one of the upcoming meetings:

Carihi Funding Request from the Parent Advisory Council (PAC) - Letter 

The Carihi PAC provides valuable financial support to make extracurricular sports, clubs and activities accessible to all of our students and to provide scholarships. 

 Due to a grant submission error, the Carihi PAC is not guaranteed the PAC Community Gaming Grant of approximately $17,000 this 2023-24 year. We have submitted a late application and do not expect a response until the end of December or as late as early March 2024. With this uncertainty and delay we are not able to support fall sports or extracurricular activities. 

The BC gaming grant has been our only source of income for several years. Our existing funds are allocated to previous scholarship recipients and there is no surplus for the current year. This means we are unable to pay the BC Athletics fees, support Carihi sports teams, fund travel to sporting events and other student competitions, provide funds to clubs like robotics, leadership, art and Indigenous mentorship, and give to extracurricular events in band, choir and musical theater. 

Make A Donation

We are asking for one-time donations to Carihi PAC. Please make cheques payable to Carihi Secondary School and indicate PAC Fundraiser on the memo line or you can e-transfer to For Donations over $100 a tax receipt will be issued by SD72. For a tax receipt please include name and mailing address. 

 If our late gaming grant application is approved then donations will be used to further fund PAC’s support of extracurricular sports, clubs and activities. 

How To Give

  • Mail or drop-off cheque at office: Carihi Secondary School, Attention PAC, 350 Dogwood St., Campbell River, BC V9W 2X1
  • E-transfer: Please include your mailing address for tax receipt.
  • Bottle Drive: Take your empties to Island Return It Depot and ask them to add it to the Carihi PAC account.
