Room Parents

We use a Room Parents system to help organise school events, communicate important information and updates, share photographs, and welcome new families to Winpenny. Our Room Parents created ofrendas with pre-Hispanic themes for Day of the Dead. Each year, they also organise games, pumpkin decorating, and a scavenger hunt for children to celebrate Halloween. At Christmas, Room Parents perform a traditional Mexican pastorela for all of the children to enjoy.

School for Parents

Every year, Winpenny organises three School for Parents events for each section of the school: Kinder, Primary and Secondary. Experts are invited to talk to parents about pertinent issues affecting children. Recently we have offered presentations on internet safety, digital citizenship, digital footprint, mindful parenting, and caring for physical and mental health in children.
