We believe that parental engagement leads to student success. Find out how you can get involved in your child’s education.
PARENT-TEACHER ASSOCIATION (PTA)
PTA is primarily a social organisation. The main goal of the PTA is to promote fun and social events. The secondary goal is fundraising. Members organise a number of key events throughout the year, including coffee mornings, parent dinners and the annual ISCT Founders’ Day fair.
Every parent and teacher at ISCT is a member of the PTA. The PTA suggests and delivers projects that benefit ISCT and its wider community. We ask every parent to help with at least one project a year to ensure it’s success.
The PTA has portfolios for sport, gardening, social outreach, and more.
Find out which projects and portfolios you can apply your time and talents to.

PARENT LIAISON COMMITTEE (PLC)
The purpose of the Parent Liaison Committee (PLC) is to support ISCT in strengthening relations between parents and staff, the school management team, and its parent company, Education Development Trust. The aim is to represent the interests of parents and students and to be a conduit for constructive feedback between parents and the school. The goal is always to help create a supportive learning environment for our children.
The PLC is an advisory body. It is not a formal decision-making body of the school. To contact the PLC, please email email@example.com.
BURSARY TRUST FUND
The purpose of the trust is to provide financial support to underprivileged students to study at ISCT. The trust will give preference to potential students who were previously disadvantaged in South African society.

Struben House parents have the opportunity to read to their children’s class at story time. There is a sign-up roster outside the classroom.
The Nearly New uniform shop is run by the PTA who are always looking for volunteers to assist them. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to help—this is a great way of getting to know the other parents at ISCT!
CLASS REPS (PARENTS)
Every class in the Primary School has a parent class representative. Their role ranges from welcoming new parents and classmates to coordinating birthday cards for teachers and end-of-year parties.
