It’s Definitely Time to Celebrate!
The QFHSA is extremely happy to announce the return of its In-Person Awards Banquet! Don’t miss this great opportunity to meet and connect with other local Home and School Associations in the company of the QFHSA Board of Directors, staff, guests, and stakeholders in Quebec education.
The event is a wonderful way for local Home and School Associations to celebrate their exceptional volunteers. Invite your Golden Torch winners and Unsung Heroes out to dinner to thank them for the incredible work they do to support and strengthen your school community. At the awards ceremony, local Home and School heroes will be fêted alongside other QFHSA award winners. Tickets for the event are $60 per person. Your response is requested by April 30th.
The QFHSA’s Proposed Resolutions for 2023
Each year, the QFHSA’s committees follow the latest developments in Quebec education and provincial and federal politics—developments that will affect our parents and our community. The committees then develop resolutions to address the issues of the day. This year’s proposed resolutions will be presented at the QFHSA’s 79th Annual General Meeting on Thursday, June 1.
