Parents’ Association (PA) and Parents’ Council (PC)
When your son or daughter joins TBGS, as parents you are joining a community, and the school’s parents’ association and parents’ council are at the heart of it. Both the PA and PC are open to all parents who wish to attend.
When do we meet?
Meetings are held once every half term and start at 7pm, usually in the library. Items associated with the PA form the first part of the meeting and this usually lasts between 30 and 45 minutes; this is followed by the PC meeting which generally lasts about 45 minutes. Refreshments are served prior to the start of the meeting, providing a great opportunity to get to know other parents.
What do we do?
The PA organises social events throughout the year where parents can meet and enjoy themselves. The PA is not a fund-raising group, as this important role is undertaken by the School’s Charitable Trust. Helping out at events is completely optional.
The PC provides parents with an opportunity to discuss issues or matters of concern. This can relate to individual students or to the school in general. The Headteacher, members of staff and governors attend the meetings and it is a great way to find out more about the school.
What are our aims?
- To bring parents together in a social environment
- To provide support and organisational input to major school events
- To channel parents’ views on school policy issues to the Headteacher and staff
- To contribute to the school website
- To provide expertise and advice to short and long term projects
We are keen to involve as many parents in TBGS activities as possible. This need not mean an ongoing commitment of your time. By attending one of the social events, you are not only having fun and meeting new friends, but also supporting the school and your son/daughter during his/her time at TBGS.
How to contact us?
If you are unable to attend a meeting, but wish to have an issue raised, you can email the PA on firstname.lastname@example.org
The next Wine and Wisdom event will be in the Centenary Hall on Thursday 16th November.
The next PA and Parent’s Council Meeting will be in the Library on Tuesday 28th November 7pm.
