PARENTS’ ASSOCIATION COMMITTEE
CAREERS SEASON ORGANISED BY THE PARENTS’ ASSOCIATION
In December 2015, the School’s Parents’ Association organised some careers talks for students in their final year in order to help them choose their university course.
These careers sessions were given by professionals in different fields who, in a warm and practical way, showed them the different careers opportunities made possible by the courses most popular among and most chosen by our students.
MATER SALVATORIS WARDROBE
The Mater Salvatoris Wardrobe began in 2014 as an initiative from the School’s Parents’ Association. Its aim is to gather together all those uniform items which are in good condition yet no longer used in order to sell them on at a sale with two social purposes:
School students can drop off items of uniform they are no longer using (pinafores, smocks, cardigans, shirts and tracksuits), which must be clean and in good condition. At the end of the year, as long as enough items have been collected, there will be a sale with items offered at very attractive prices.
The School is grateful for the altruistic and generous collaboration of so many families, which is fundamental for the success of this venture.
The Mater Salvatoris Wardrobe is located just next to the entrance to the 1st year of Secondary School classrooms and is open every week at the following times:
In addition, families can contact the Wardrobe using the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Parents’ School started with the aim of being another source of support that the School offers families in their children’s education. It aims to equip parents with the resources and tools needed to meet the demands of modern society.
It is a meeting space where families have the chance to discuss with professionals different themes chosen according to the stage of development their children have reached.
Through these meetings and discussion of experiences between families, the aim is to help parents identify their abilities and use them efficiently when parenting at home, to share day-to-day questions that arise and to find efficient solutions which help parents overcome both big and small challenges in their children’s education.
These are the activities organised for parents by the School in the second term of the 2015-2016 school year:
