Key Roles & Contribution to School

The Parents' Association is involved in many areas of school life and key roles include:

  • Facilitating ease of communication between school management and parents with the School Principals always attending meetings of the Association.
  • Inviting speakers to address parents on topical interests of relevance such as managing the emotional wellbeing of students, mental health issues, appropriate internet usage, cyber bullying and general health and wellbeing.
  • Annual social events such as The Winter Ball, Golf Outing, Family Tennis etc. Many of these events have a significant charitable fundraising aspect to them.
  • Donations to School initiatives such as library books for the Junior And Senior School Libraries, Sports Day prizes, sponsoring sports jerseys, piano, foil blankets etc.
  • Arranging Art and Literary competitions for students.
  • Organising annual mock interview careers mornings for our 5th year students.
