Dwight’s Parent Association is our volunteer parent organisation that provides a focal point for the school community. All Dwight parents are automatically members.
Through class representatives, the Parent Association facilitates the communication between class teachers and parents in relation to volunteers for classroom or special events. The class representatives also facilitate the social interaction among families in the school community.
The DPA’s main goal is to foster a sense of community within the Schools. With families from all over the world including right here in London, it strives to make sure each family finds support and friendship when moving to Dwight.
The DPA serves as a fundraising vehicle for school community events and projects for Dwight Nursery, Junior and Senior Schools. Activities include The Winter Fair, International Food Fair, teacher appreciation activities, and the Book Fair. Plus, it assists the schools with food drives or other charity projects the students are involved in.
The Parent Association also supports the Admissions team assisting new families in their transition to both London and the school via the Parent Buddy Programme. This program is designed to assist our new families in their transition to London and our school, by connecting new families with our existing ones who have similar aged children or speak the same language. It is a very valuable programme and we strongly recommend that all new families take advantage of it by clicking on the link above.
Parents interested in becoming more involved or who have any questions should email DPA@dwightlondon.org.
Classlist Parent App
We have two ways to make sure we have communication between parents. Each year has a designated WhatsApp Family Chat that is dedicated to Dwight classroom needs, reminders, or questions that we can help each other with. In addition, we use Classlist, an app which helps us communicate with each other. Classlist is not only another means of safe communication between parents of the school but also a means of providing support and assistance to each other. A range of questions are regularly answered, and there is a useful section for buying and selling items. For more information on Classlist and to download the app click here.
