Parent’s Association

Thanks to those who came along Friday morning (and the apologies). We began with only a small turn out and all felt that we should probably allow everyone to focus their energy on Spring Fair and reconvene later in the year. However Wolfgang, a Steiner teacher who’s been appointed in a community liaison role came by just before recess. We had been having a chat and catching up but Wolfgang’s arrival triggered a discussion about how things are currently working and what the formal requirements are of a Parents Association. We learned that at the very least we are required to have people acting in positions of President, Treasurer and Secretary.

The discussion lasted about an hour and everyone around the table agreed to form a working group to look at the formal requirements, policies etc and put together a set of procedures for a new Collingwood College Parents Association. Working with Wolfgang, the group will consult with the Leadership Team and School Council on school policies and will convene a meeting to report to the entire school community either late this year or in the first weeks of term one next year. Three people were nominated to act in the positions of President, Treasurer and Secretary until the start of next year when nominations will be sought for running the new Parents Association in 2013.

Parents Association Working Group:

Acting President: Anna McKie
Acting Treasurer: Tina Wilkins
Acting Secretary: Yukima Cameron

Members: Mary Gardiner, Marion Halpin, Dallas Pittock

Kind regards,
Tina Wilkins
