The Oak Bay Band Parents Association (OBBPA) is a volunteer group dedicated to supporting Oak Bay Bands. We have many roles in the band program; we communicate with families, help supervise students at events, assist with band events and concerts, raise funds to enhance learning opportunities for our students in the band programs, provide and maintain band uniforms and more.
Funds raised are used for a number of initiatives including purchasing instruments, music and uniforms, creating student music awards, covering band trip expenditures, and assisting students in raising funds to pay for their band trips. Learn more about band accounts on our Fundraising page.
Our current fundraising activities include Poinsettias, Purdys Chocolates and (Coffee -- once we find coordinators!) and fun events, such as Bingo nights. If you have a great fundraising idea, please share your thoughts!
Donations are welcome. See our website store for the easiest way to donate. If you would like to receive a tax receipt, we recommend making a donation through Oak Bay High and earmarking your donation to the music program. We can help facilitate this. Please contact us for more information.
We always welcome parent volunteers and have positions requiring as many or as few hours as you have available to give. Our board positions generally run from September to June, and volunteer opportunities for fundraisers, events and band trips are always available. Please contact a board member if you have one hour or many to help out.
Board meetings are generally held on the second Tuesday of the month in the Band Room from 7 to 8 pm.
