Parents Network Meetings 2021

9th February 2021


Our Parents Network Executive Committee for 2021:

  • Karen Fortier - President
  • Christa Placzek - Acting Treasurer
  • Anneli Haipola - Secretary

What is the TGS Parents Network?
As a parent of our School (Pre-Prep to Year 12), you are automatically a part of our TGS Parents Network and on behalf of our new committee, I warmly welcome and encourage you to join in whenever and however you can.

Our Parents Network is a committee of parents who come together to proactively support the School. The group, through the Executive Committee, manages the funds raised through Parent Levies and other fundraising activities. Funds are used to purchase equipment and facilities, as identified, for the School’s three campuses.

The Parents Network Committee holds regular meetings which are open to all parents. Additionally, the network supports various School events and stages parent community events throughout the year which raise funds that are directed back into the School. We will be calling on parents across our three campuses to volunteer to assist in organising and staging these events. We appreciate any level of involvement.


Our Parents Network meetings are a great way to meet other parents and to contribute to our School. Meetings are attended by parents from across our three campuses, held in the Library at the North Ward Campus.  The meetings have a very warm and welcoming atmosphere, and involve lively conversations about the ways in which we can support our School.

Our first meeting for the year is Thursday, 18 February – 6:30-7:30pm (Zoom available).
Supper is provided if you would like to stay afterwards and catch up with other parents.
A list of 2021 meeting dates is  available here.

Zoom Meetings in 2021

We are working with the TGS IT department to trial the introduction of Zoom meetings, so that parents can join in without having to be physically present. We hope this will appeal to our boarding parents!

Our first meeting next Thursday, 18 February, will offer a Zoom connection.

Please email the Parents Network if you would like to join in via Zoom and we will send you the link:
