We are a group of parents dedicated to help the school in organizing activities, programs, and events which aim at promoting school spirit and the love for our school. We also act as a communication channel between the school administration and the parents on matters that effect them the most. We believe in a strong coalition between the school and parents, with God in our midst.
Every parent of Oakville Christian School (OCS) is a member of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and is encouraged to find an area of interest and/or talent in which to become involved. It’s a wonderful way to make friends, support our independent private school, and to become better acquainted with all that OCS has to offer.
OCS PTA provides support services, student enrichment, special events, and fund raisers. Our Christian school community life is enriched with special events including Christmas Event, Grandparents Day, and Founder’s Day. Pizza days not only provide a fun addition to the OCS lunch program, but proceeds go into a special account to help fund each year’s graduating class. Through the PTA, parents support the library, supervision, service council and other departments throughout the school. The Uniform Exchange gives parents a place to recycle and purchase “gently-used” uniforms.
These are only a few ways that OCS PTA contribute to – and enriches – the school experience for students and their families, as we strive to offer the best environment and supportive community. OCS PTA is governed by an executive board and events are managed through various committee chairs. All school PTA meetings are held twice a term and details are published on this site and through the OCS News. All information can be found within this site, but should you require further information, please contact us through the front office or at email@example.com
We look forward to seeing you all soon,
2016/2017 PTA Executive Board

Leadership and relationship expert, Dr. Karyn Gordon, will be presenting “Teaching Empathy & Gratitude In Your Kids & Teens”.
Many parents reveal that one of their greatest desires is for their children to be more appreciative. However, our culture of immediate gratification can make it difficult for parents to effectively teach gratitude and empathy. Thankfully, research tells us that empathy and gratitude are cornerstones of Emotional Intelligence – and therefore they can be learned!
In this keynote, parents will learn:
