Pathways Parent Partnership is a collaboration of parents with the school to meaningfully contribute to the students education and experiences. It acts as a liaison between the parent community and the school. This two-way communication seeks to address issues raised by parents and to have them amicably resolved in a positive environment. This is achieved by building an involved, interactive, and cooperative Pathways Parent community where concerns & suggestions are addressed by working closely with the school in a positive and constructive atmosphere.
The PPP was founded formally in 2009 by a group of Primary School Parents, with a focus on the Primary School. The group gradually evolved to provide an excellent forum for parents to come together, share ideas, and put forward their views to the Principal and the School Management.
The Members also undertook many community service projects in the government adopted schools in collaboration with Pathways World School, some of which were, the water project, construction of toilets in the girl’s school, setting up of computer labs to name a few. The PPP also displayed its robust existence by volunteering in the school’s fund-raising events and other extra-curricular events.
This genuine partnership between the school and the members of PPP has shown a progressive positive effect on the school culture over the years and has helped break down barriers, and have open two way conversation between the parents and the school.
We are delighted to welcome the new members of the PPP for the year 2021-22 and 2022-23.
Please join me in wishing the members a warm welcome and wish them the best for a successful tenure as members of the Pathways Parent Partnership.
