The mission of the Parents Association is to promote communication and understanding between the parents and the school on matters of interest to the parents as a whole; build and sustain community amongst the parents; and enhance the experience for the boys, faculty, and other members of the St. Bernard’s community.
The Parents Association is a valuable link between the school and the parents. All parents are members and encouraged to take part in the association. A representative from each class maintains communication with the other parents of that class. The executive committee of the association, made up of the officers, the class representatives, and the heads of the various committees, meets regularly with the headmaster. Parents are encouraged to take part in the association, which organizes a number of activities to help the school. Officers are elected at the annual meeting in May.
A parent of each boy serves on the Safety Patrol one afternoon a year. Volunteers work in the library and the book fair, run the general store and the sports equipment and jacket exchange, and sponsor the annual benefit, an enjoyable event in the life of the school.
