Parent Committee

The THIS Parent Committee for 2023/24

Our primary aim, as parents, is to secure the best possible environment for our children’s growth and development. It all starts with selecting a school where our kids can truly thrive, learn, and forge lifelong friendships. Our vision for the school experience is one filled with positivity, collaboration, and inclusivity for all.

The Parent Committee is committed to realizing this vision. Elected by you, the parent body, we serve as advocates for both students and parents, working tirelessly to foster a supportive and welcoming school community. Here’s how we contribute:

1. Facilitating Communication

We act as a bridge between the school and parents, ensuring transparent communication and addressing any concerns promptly. Your feedback and ideas are invaluable to us, and we channel them to the school administration and board to foster understanding and cooperation.

2. Organizing Engaging Events

From festive celebrations like Halloween parties to informative sessions like Open House events, we curate various gatherings for students and parents. These activities are crucial for nurturing a sense of belonging and camaraderie within our school community.

3. Ensuring Effective Governance

We play a pivotal role in shaping the school’s future by encouraging parent participation in selecting school board members. Through active involvement in board meetings, we advocate for policies and decisions that prioritize learning and well-being.

In essence, the Parent Committee is your dedicated partner in realizing the shared aspirations of parents, students, and educators. Together, we strive to create a nurturing, inclusive, and enriching school community where every child can flourish and reach their full potential.
