Parent representatives

Parent representatives serve as contact partners for parents. They seek to strengthen ties between parents and the school, and to foster a climate of collaboration, friendship, kindness and trust that benefits everyone, particularly the children.

With the greatest respect for the freedom and educational style of each family, the parent representatives contribute to the parents’ understanding of the interest in maintaining a demanding, simple, hard-working and happy family environment, in which children grow in maturity and freedom.  

Parent representatives also act as representatives for class groups and show initiative in all activities involving the parents and families of their respective class. At school level, through their role and their close relationship with the school management, they help to strengthen ties between the school and its families and to perfect the educational project.   

There are a couple of parent representatives per class.  Do not hesitate to get in touch with them.  

Getting involved in school life

Parents play a prominent role at Agnes School. The school invites you to get involved in the academic follow-up of your children and in school life, so that families and teachers can work together, hand in hand. 
 
By actively participating in school life, you will contribute to the family-school partnership, which is at the heart of our educational project. There are numerous ways to get involved. What are your main interests and skills? 

Getting involved in the chaplaincy

Agnes School considers that the spiritual growth of its pupils is an integral part of the tailored educational project that it offers. 

Pupils and their parents therefore have the opportunity to actively participate in the chaplaincy.
