Parents Class Ambassadors

What is a Parents Class Ambassador

A Parents Class Ambassador is the link between the parents of one class section and our School’s Parents Fund Drive (PFD).

With the help of Parents Class Ambassadors, we can spread the message of giving and volunteering in the class of our children and build an even stronger Scholarship Program, thus supporting the continued attendance at our School of students in need of financial support.

Collective participation is our strength.
