Building community together – message from the Chair and Vice Chair of the Parents' AssociationOn behalf of the Parents’ Association (PA) East, we welcome you to the East Campus community comprising students, parents, staff, Board members and alumni.
PA East’s mission is simply : “Building Community Together”.
We have a diverse committee of 15 members this year with a good mix of experienced and first-time volunteers from different nationalities, language groups, careers and interests.
PA committee engages parent volunteers to hold various community-building activities and events like Family Festival, the Grade 12 Graduation as well as the High School Careers Fair with the help of Nationality groups and various school departments. PA Committee Members liaise with school leadership to channel the voices of parents on school life, community, culture and other big-ticket topics.
Today we live in a vastly different era from the time when the school and the PA were established, and we must address these new challenges.
- Less volunteering bandwidth from growing number of working parents
- Pandemic cancelling most offline events and activities
- Different needs and asks of new generation of parents
Thus, the PA will build on the work of the past years like sustainability, service,
events and activities. Meanwhile, we will prioritise our 2020-2021 PA on initiatives
that will have long term impact, eg:
- Upgrading communication tools reaching more parents more efficiently
- Building wider volunteer base by engaging more new blood
- Adapting traditional activities and events to hybrid (online+offline) mode
Every parent is a beneficiary of the association and is welcomed to get involved in
PA activities at your own interest and time. Any amount of contribution is appreciated and invaluable to the community. Feel free to contact us at email@example.com if you have queries about PA East. We look forward to directly hearing from each of you. Together with our parents and school, we can make an accessible, inclusive and forward-thinking organization contributing to the bigger community.
