SHS is an independent day school for boys from JK to Grade 8. Our mission is to inspire and empower each boy through his formative years.

Hello Parents,

On behalf of the Sterling Hall School Parents Association, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our SHS families. I am looking forward to being your President for the 2018-2019 school year. It will be a true honour to work together with all of you to make our school the best it can be!

As a parent of a boy at SHS, you are automatically a member of our Parents Association. This makes you a vital part of our community and, without parents like you, our school couldn’t be all that it is.

Throughout the year, the SHS PA co-ordinates events that are fun to participate in and promise to bring our community together. Events are organized by our fantastic parent volunteers. In fact, if there is an event you would like to be part of, please let us know! We can’t do it without you! Some parents choose to volunteer from their desks and others are able to volunteer in the school. No amount of time is considered too little. We value every hour of time you can contribute to our school.

Please be sure to check the SHS calendar and make note of special events in your personal calendars. You can also go online and download the events to your phone. (If I can do it, anyone can!)

One of our favourite times at Sterling Hall is Friday mornings. We gather for coffee and tea with Principal Parsons then pull up a chair to watch our incredible boys run their own Assemblies. It’s a treasured time to see them in action and hear about character strengths, charitable activities, sports and academic highlights they are involved in. If you get a chance to join us on Fridays, you won’t be disappointed.

Throughout the school year, the PA holds five meetings that provide an opportunity to see what the PA is actively working on and what is happening throughout the school. It’s a wonderful forum that provides valuable insight about our school community. We invite different speakers from the school administration who share their latest insights regarding their particular area of expertise. It’s an easy way to keep up to date with SHS academic direction and any other new and interesting events that may be in the works. Our PA meetings are always a good way to connect with other parents and we would love to have you join us. Everyone is welcome and the more the merrier!

If you have any questions at all, please contact me directly at It’s my pleasure to be here for you. I look forward to seeing you in the halls and at our fun SHS community events!

Warmest Regards,

Andrea Bartell

PA President 2018-2019
