P&F Initiatives

New Parent Buddy Program

The New Parent Buddy Program supports the parents of families new to the school, as they navigate their family’s preparation and first days and weeks at the School.

The program pairs a new parent with an existing parent ‘buddy’ who will be there for them, to answer the questions that randomly pop up, such as How do I make a lunch order online? Where’s a good place to park to drop off/pick up the children? Who do I talk to about music lessons/sports events/lunchtime clubs?
