In June 2020, the annual PA Backpack Drive and had a record response. Thanks to everyone who supported this effort, and the amazing volunteers who organized it, we filled 374 backpacks for children in need in Vancouver. Together, we made a difference.
The School welcomes parent contributions to school life and provides many opportunities for parents to be actively involved in their daughters’ education. Parents are true partners, sharing in the success of the School.
Volunteer opportunities and social events bring parents together. As the girls become friends through their school experiences, so do the parents. Attendance at events planned by the School and the Parents’ Auxiliary, participation in field trips and lending of expertise all contribute to the rich fabric of Crofton House life. Parents of current students and alumnae play an important role in our inclusive community and work together to provide an exceptional education for Crofton House girls.
The CHS Parents’ Auxiliary
The Crofton House School Parents’ Auxiliary leads by example. Year after year, the extraordinary dedication and volunteerism of parents make Crofton House a place where girls feel supported, nurtured and inspired to pursue their personal excellence. Through the experience of volunteering with fellow Crofton House families, whether it is for an hour or a day or planning an event, parents demonstrate the true meaning of citizenship to our daughters and model how to contribute, impact and make a difference.
“We are truly more than a collection of students and individuals. At the heart of it, we are a community where not only our girls belong, but where we all belong. I invite you to be part of it. I know you will make new friends, build strong connections and be a wonderful role model.”

The PA Used Uniform Sale, adapted to allow for social distancing, was a huge success. The event helped provide families with access to a range of uniform items from blazers to athletics apparel, as well as improving sustainability.
Crofton House School and the CHS Parents' Auxiliary were pleased to welcome Dr Lisa Damour, psychologist, author, columnist, teacher and expert on child development, as this year's Whole Girl, Whole World speaker.
