Home & School

The Home and School Association is an independent parent-driven organization. Its main purpose is to fundraise for the school to provide much needed support for the students and staff. This is achieved through subsidizing school trips, purchasing enrichment equipment and supplies. The Home and School Association also organizes various fundraisers and events throughout the school year. In addition, some of the fundraising efforts help support local charities.

Edinburgh School has a very active Home & School Association. With an Executive totaling 11 people and many more volunteers, we are able to support many programs and extras in the school, all to the benefit of our children.

Members of our community who wish to volunteer at Edinburgh must first complete a judicial verification form.
