The PLG (Parents Liaison Group) is a voluntary organisation of parents whose role is to encourage closer links between home and school. As well as organising fundraising events, they also have a useful social function and provide an opportunity for parents and staff to get together.
Parents volunteer as Class Reps. There may be more than one Rep for a year group. There is also a Boarders’ Rep.
The Welcome Coffee Morning held at Hotel Suisse Majestic in Montreux at the start of the new school year is an opportunity for parents to meet each other and exchange contact information.
The PLG have created a babysitting list and a list of language support links for new families, and have their own Facebook page.
The PLG committee meet regularly in the School, and the Class Reps communicate matters to the parents in their year group via coffee events.
In Term I the Family Picnic for all students and the Halloween Party for Junior pupils is organised by the PLG. In Term II and III, the PLG host Social events such as a Cheese and Wine/Quiz night.
The International Week for the Juniors also relies on the PLG for support. Year 6 Class Reps are particularly involved with a Charity fundraising project each year.
The PLG also organise the termly sale of second hand school uniform. Other help is asked for with some school trips, assistance at events hosted by St. George's, Skiing etc. Parents' email contacts are supplied to the Class Reps, unless a parent has asked for this not to be published. This information is solely for use to communicate school information and is not to be reproduced or used in any other way. Parents have given their permission on this understanding.
