The purpose of The Grammar School Parents & Guardians Association is to cultivate communication between parents, teachers, students and the administration, while fostering a feeling of community among the parents for the greater good of the school. The Parents & Guardians Association is an invaluable support to the school and an additional channel through which the school can reach parents.
The Parents & Guardians Association works tirelessly throughout the year providing parents with a programme of lectures and seminars which relate to education, psychology and social issues faced by teenagers and parents today. They are also very active fundraisers, organizing a variety of events including the annual dinner dance which not only brings teachers and parents together, but also raises funds to help those in need within the school community. In addition, parents assist in a wide range of school activities and functions.
In recognition of students’ hard work, dedication and academic achievements, The Parents & Guardians Association present awards at the annual graduation ceremony. These prestigious awards are presented to the first ten students who gain a Grammar School scholarship in each year group, as well as the students who come 1st in their class. They also present awards to students with the best IGCSE results and plaques to each graduate at The Graduation & Awards Ceremony.
The SGPA committee is selected each year following elections which usually take place at the beginning of the academic year. All parents and guardians can become members of the association.
