Class Rep Workshop - Tuesday 23 May

24 May 2023

On behalf of the parent association I'd like to thank all class reps who came to the Class Rep Workshop yesterday evening. Everyone was well prepared and full of questions. It was a constructive moment of problem-crunching and sharing of experiences across levels and sections. We had four overall subject matters and lots of concerns, trouble-shooting and bright ideas for the future of our children here at the school. 


Now begins the real work for the board of the parent association and we will do our best to get back to you with useful conclusions and follow-up before the summer holidays begin.
