Welcome to the HPAC Page.

As a community of parents, the HPAC works with school administrators and staff to support student success.

This page provides parents with news about HPAC activities and events, connects you with information and resources you need, and identifies opportunities where you can make a difference to the school.

Ways to support student success at Handsworth

  1. Come to a HPAC Meeting or event.  Connect with other Handsworth parents, catch up on what's going on at the school, and provide your input and ideas on how parents can support student success at Handsworth
  2. Volunteer  Help out with an HPAC initiative or event.  Any contribution of your time or talents is valued.  Contact us for more information.
  3. Donate HERE  Contribute to educational resources to enhance student learning.  Dollars from our Provincial gaming funds budget and fundraising efforts stretch only so far to meet needs.  All donations in excess of $25 will be issued a tax receipt.
