What is the Friends of EGA? 

This is a Parent Forum made up from a body of parents and carers. The Friends of EGA is representative of all parents and carers in the school community and provides a forum for them to put forward their views to the School in an inclusive and accessible way to involve them in decisions about the School.

It is a forum through which parents and carers can be consulted, learn more about the School and how they can be involved in it, be provided with information and encouraged to network with other parents and carers.  Involvement in the Friends of EGA is an informal way to feel involved in our School community.

Functions of the Friends of EGA: 

The Friends of EGA has a consultative and advisory role; it is a means to strengthen the voice of parents and carers and to enable them to express their opinions and influence students’ achievements. Parents and carers are a driving force behind their children’s progress, but also for improving the school system as a whole and much more. 

The Friends of EGA gives parents and carers a route to express their opinions and ideas about the School. Involvement in the Friends of EGA is an opportunity to generate a culture of genuine participation and to attempt to reach all parents and carers of all backgrounds.
