The parent council consists of elected parent representatives who represent their respective classes for two consecutive years. The parent council functions as the voice of the parents and by extension, the learners too. They address the teaching body and school management board with regards to the interests of parents and learners, as well as supporting school activities.
The parent council meets approximately eight times per year on a Tuesday evening to discuss relevant issues, activities of the various portfolio committees and tasks, which have been undertaken by representatives. For example: sports, bazaar, safety & traffic, aftercare, social responsibility, art & culture.
Matters for discussion are submitted prior to the meeting via email to the Chairperson and subsequently addressed. The monthly minutes are circulated via email for action and follow-up.
Through the parent council, parents can get involved in various school functions and activities. Being part of the parent council, means the opportunity to access information, make contact with like-minded parents – especially for ‘new parents’ and to put ideas into action in collaboration with the teaching and management bodies. The Bazaar, for example, is our biggest annual event and fundraiser and its success relies heavily on the support of the whole school community.
