Parent School Association (PSA)
Role and Goals
Our PSA is a focus group where parents and the school leadership work together on whole school development. We meet 3-4 times per year and the agendas are co-written. The school write the agenda for first half of each meeting and the parents write the agenda for the second half. The school agenda focuses on reporting developments in the Systematic Quality Work, asking parents for input before making certain significant changes in the school policy or routines and getting parental input to planned investments or developments.
The parent agenda focuses on raising whole-school issues and trends, requests etc for the Principal and leadership to comment on, clarify or investigate and report back on. We do not discuss specific students or staff members however, the school’s normal communication channels should be used for such issues.
Every parent is welcome to be a member of the school’s PSA. The PSA invites parents to the meetings and gives them editing rights on the agenda. The effectiveness of the PSA reflects the involvement of every parent. We look forward to it being a real success this year! The working relationship of school and the Parent School Association helps to unite students, parents and the school in a way that is beneficial to all.
