Parent Teacher Association

We believe that parental and community involvement is the key to running a successful school. Class Representatives are elected at the beginning of each academic year at our Annual Meet and Greet sessions. These representatives form the Parent Teacher Association who are responsible for assisting the school to build solid relationships between the home and the school through a host of activities that are arranged throughout the school year.
The PTA’s main focus is:
To assist the school to achieve its goals through organising and supporting school events.

Parent Teacher Interviews

These are held formally each term after reports have been issued. Parents may also be invited to attend meetings as and when the need arises. The school has an open door policy that allows parents, who have concerns, the opportunity to discuss their child’s progress throughout the term.
