Parent Teacher Association

PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION

The total education of the child is the concern of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA). It provides a forum for discussion between the school administration and the teachers on the one hand, and parents on the other.

Towards this goal the PTA acts, advising and assisting the school administration, and promoting and enabling parents and teachers to work together for the development, progress and welfare of the students of the school. The PTA encourages and facilitates parents and teachers to cooperate in furthering the educational, religious, social and cultural activities of the school. All in all, it aims at providing a holistic education for our children.

Parents, when you join the Parent Teacher Association, you become part of the school’s extended family that cares about issues that affect the school. Membership is open to the parents of every child currently studying in the school and to the members of the staff of the school.

Teachers, by virtue of their designation as a member o the Academic staff of the school,  become a member of the PTA.

The 2012/2013 PTA Executive Committee took office on 29 February 2012 subsequent to the Annual General Meeting. The Executive Committee is divided into 5 sub committees which carry out projects under the guidance of the school administration and with the cooperation of the PTA membership.

The PTA also works with the Welfare Association, the Past Pupils’ Association and the Past Teachers’ Association when necessary.  Mr. Ashley Fonseka and Ms. Shiyamini Perera will represent the PTA on the Welfare Society Board during this year. Mrs. Dilrukshi Sukumaran will represented the PTA on the Association of Past Teachers.
