In the Lower School, parent class representatives serve a primary role in maintaining good communication between parents, teachers and the school in general. The class representatives also facilitate social interaction amongst families in the school community. Parent class representatives may organize activities relating to the class, and receive questions on a specific subject (i.e. school trips, transport, health and safety, canteen, etc.) from parents. They can communicate messages from other classes or school groups, and raise questions, ideas and problems directly with the teachers. More importantly they are a point of contact for new parents.
