Back-to-School Potluck/AGM success!

on Sun, 09/22/2013 - 20:55

On September 22nd, the PSAB hosted a great Back to School Potluck  at the Matelots in Versailles.  The 130 attendees included students (from the primary section for the youngest ones all the way up to the twelfth grade for the oldest), parents, teachers and all Board members. Dishes filled the buffets giving people a wonderful opportunity to sample unique food (an amazing Ploughman's bread with caramelized onions) and converse with fellow parents and teachers.We had our General Assembly while the children played outside, a Saltimbuc skit and a fun MUN  mock debate. Thank you to Jim for his video presentation, to Michael who MCed the GA, to Mike for the It technical support, to Sherri and Gabriela our secretaries for the minutes of our GA, to Florence for her financial report.... A big thank you to all the volunteers, many hands make light work! There was a great turn out and everyone had a good time proving that there is no better way to get the new school year off to a great start than with a good old Potluck! Welcome on Board to our new Board members:Jerry our new Lycee VP and Gabriela our new secretary!  View all the pictures of this event under What's Happening/Galleries.
