The Parent Participation Organization (P.P.O.) gives the opportunity for parents to be involved in the day-to-day life of a school. By law, the PPO has a twofold purpose: 1) to encourage parents to be involved in fostering their child’s academic success and 2) to collaborate in developing, implementing and evaluating the school’s educational project. The P.P.O. can also advise the parent representatives on the school’s Governing Board about parents’ concerns. The Governing Board may consult the P.P.O. when parents’ opinions and ideas are needed (Education Act, Section 96-3).
At Dunrae Gardens School, we have the privilege of an engaged parent community, which includes a very active P.P.O. supported by a Governing Board that encourages as much parent involvement as possible. Being a member of the Dunrae Gardens P.P.O. means getting your voice heard and playing an active role in the success of your child. We believe that a positive parent contribution to the school depends on the involvement of as many parents, like you!
