Preschool & Primary Parent Faculty Association

Every member of the family is a part of the Collège du Léman community. Parents play a vital role in school life and events.

Our international school is a thriving community in which everyone has a role to play.

Our Parent Faculty Association plays a huge role in the daily life of the school. Every parent and teacher is automatically a member, and can support the school by volunteering and helping to arrange events.

Our Preschool and Primary students enjoy seeing parents around the school, and they can use their talents to improve lessons and organise outside activities. Families have helped to create successful events and long-standing traditions, from first break sales to book fairs, welcoming committees and gift box appeals.

Parents can also volunteer to various roles around the school, from class parents to translators and event photographers. The PFA is also active in the school's charitable activities. This year, The primary school charity is Aarohan, which provides education for children in New Delhi, India.
