A focus for our students is building their developmental assets through curricular and extra-curricular activities. We believe organizations such as our Free the Children Club (Me to We), Student Parliament, Athletic Council (PAC) and Garden Club present our students with opportunities to develop leadership, a sense of social justice and strong friendships. These groups have supported such initiatives as Scare Hunger, Adopt a Village and our Outdoor Classroom. Other Extra-curricular opportunities that also support student character development and engagement include primary and senior choirs, band, ukulele club, intramural sports for all ages (run by our PAC), primary building club, Forest of Reading club, running club and intraschool sports such as volleyball, basketball, cross country and track and field.
Our School has a strong tradition of parental support. We have a School Council. Our School Council is an advisory body to the administration and the school board and has provided leadership in boundary reviews as well as providing support to parents through educational evenings: in the past two years they facilitated a presentation with R.O.C.K on Childhood Anxiety and presentation on Building Resilience in Children. The School Council also fundraises for the school to raise money for the Arts, Phys-ed, Technology and curriculum support. Their focus this year is on engaging parents and making Pilgrim Wood a welcome place for them to contribute to the community.
