Dear College Parents

Parents’ Association

The 'Virtual AGM' for the Parents' Association was held on 28th January and we welcomed the new PA Committee under the leadership of Malcolm Gray. The PA plays a very important part in creating a positive relationship between the school and parents. The PA over the past few years has been very successful in achieving this and I would like to thank the outgoing Chair, Simon Cranswick, for his exceptional leadership. He has not only ensured that the relationship between the PA and the school has been a positive one but has also represented the parent community very well on the Bishops Council. Thank you Simon.

We also take this opportunity to thank all the outgoing members, Sabine Gruber, India Baird, Jane Roberts, Laura Pithey and Bruce Jack, for their wonderful contribution. They have been a pleasure to work with. The new PA Committee is:

Elected Members:
Malcolm Gray (Chair), Lorraine Mewett (Treasurer), Sebastian Janssens, Penny Knight, Angela Norton, Jacqui Thacker, Tersia Velosa.

House Reps:
Andreas Nel (Founders), Angela Norton (School), Jane van Wyngaarden (White), Siviwe Minyi (Gray), Stuart Casteling (Ogilvie), Natalie Naude (Kidd), Leanne Allison (Birt), Debbie Gray (Mallett).
