Parent Community

There are many ways to engage in your child’s learning at Tenison Woods College and become involved in the life of the school community. 

Whether it’s as a member of the Parents and Friends Committee, volunteering to help in the canteen, listening to reading, helping out in the classroom, being a Learning Assistance Program (LAP) volunteer, being involved in the development and reviews of school policies, helping out at school events, joining the School Board, assisting in working bees, attending school social events, attending parent information evenings – the list is endless.

We are looking for interested parents who would like to become a Parent Representative of their child’s class from Reception through to Year 7. The nature of the Parent Representative role will differ according to the developmental age of students in the class. 

Parent Representatives will assist the classroom teacher in welcoming families to the class and the school. They will also be involved in liaising with families and the teacher to facilitate strong communication, providing a sounding board for parents in relation to questions or concerns they may have about their child’s learning and wellbeing. Where appropriate, a Parent Representative may facilitate or co-ordinate gatherings for parents and families in the spirit of strengthening positive relationships.
