Interested in taking on the role of Parent Representative?
Wanting to continue as Parent Rep for your 2021 Class or Year Level?
Parent Representative are a liaison between parents/guardians and the school. Informing parents about activities planned either by Tintern, our community groups or within the class or year level, such as fundraisers or events.
Parent Reps also organise class or year level functions to provide parents with the opportunity of meeting and socialising in a relaxed atmosphere. It would be a great opportunity for class groups to connect, while supporting our local community cafes and restaurants still recovering from the lockdowns.
We greatly appreciate the time and commitment given by our Parent Reps. This role is suitable for Parents or Guardians who are in the workforce or who undertake home responsibilities. It can be shared between many people, or looked after by one person.
A special thank you to our wonderful team of Parent Representatives from 2020. Though the year was not what we expected, with the cancellation of many events and restrictions preventing class catch ups, we greatly appreciated their efforts in unusual times.
