Welcome Back to our NISPA Members

September 2021

Dear NISPA Community,

It is my honour and privilege to serve as the NISPA Chair for the 2021-2022 school year. I am grateful for this opportunity and would like to thank my fellow Board members for their support and dedication. I am also excited to be working with this incredible community of independent schools and their Parent Associations.

I hope you have all enjoyed a restful and happy summer with your family and friends. It has been one of renewed hope and optimism as the world slowly recovers from the pandemic. Working with all stakeholders such as fellow parents, students, teachers and administrative staff, we will learn from this experience and make our school communities better than ever. As Helen Keller once said, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much”.

Our goal at NISPA is to foster communications and facilitate the collaborative sharing of information among Parent Associations. Until schools are ready to hold in-person gatherings, NISPA will continue to provide a robust and informative virtual platform to share ideas and network. We are planning a variety of events such as workshops, roundtables and guest speakers with a wide range of interesting and relevant topics.

If you and your school would like to collaborate with us in hosting an event this year, please feel free to reach out to communications@nispa.ca. We value working with all our members and hope to increase our presence in our school communities.

Also, don’t forget to follow us on our social media platforms:

On behalf of the NISPA Board, I would like to welcome back our returning members and  look forward to meeting our new members at our upcoming events. We wish everyone a safe and happy start to the new school year!

Warmest regards,


Domenica Coppa (she/her)
