Schools are better when they partner with families. When parents share their guidance, energy and expertise with us, we are strengthened and enriched by their contribution. Educational research tells us that families are also better when they partner with schools. Children achieve more, set higher aspirations and feel more positive about school. Parents also report that they feel closer to their children and more understanding of their social, emotional and intellectual needs.
We have a wonderful parent community here at Trafalgar Castle School – a group of dedicated volunteers who make us better in so many ways. Every parent/guardian is a member of the Parents’ Guild and encouraged to become involved in the School. You may want to help with an open house, a school trip, a robotics tournament, the Castle Bazaar, Trafalgar Day or volunteer in The Boutique (the school store), to name just a few opportunities. There are many more! Please contact the Parents’ Guild at firstname.lastname@example.org. Find out more about the learning environment at Trafalgar Castle.
The Parent Handbook courtesy of the Parents' Guild (PG) offers a glimpse into Trafalgar life. From PG Initiatives and Fundraisers, to ways to get involved and Trafalgar events it's a great resource for all new parents and guardians.
"My son was in grade 12 last year and first-year university this year. It has been an extremely challenging transition for him. Having experienced the public system with my son and the independent system with my daughter at Trafalgar, I have seen the night and day differences firsthand. Trafalgar has been worth every penny of tuition.
My daughter has flourished under Trafalgar’s handling of the pandemic and the education it is providing. The teachers are going above and beyond and the schedule has really helped the girls stay on task. I could not be happier with my daughter's experience and would strongly encourage anyone considering Trafalgar that they will be thrilled with their decision. I cannot thank the Trafalgar team enough...what a great experience!"
