The Essentials

 

 

At Marymount, we want our new community to feel prepared for a new school experience. We have created this, a suite of information booklets for your reference from student essentials to our boarding school handbook. Hard copies of these will be made available at the back-to-school evening at the beginning of September.

Please feel free to contact Admissions with any additional queries you may have.

Marymount Parents' Association

The Marymount Parents’ Association exists to engage the Marymount families (including guardians), encourage a sense of community, and promote philanthropy amongst parents and guardians to further the aims of Marymount International School London.

The PA aims to achieve this mission by:

  • Running events aimed at the parent community, with the support of the Development Office, to encourage parent body cohesion within and between Grades;
  • Fundraising for key School priorities with the support of the Development Office;
  • Contributing to community communications such as the community magazine – Marymount Matters – and School communications where relevant.

To find out more, there are three Parents’ Association (PA) events as soon as you arrive:

  1. The PA Welcome Barbecue: held at school on the Saturday before school starts (this year Saturday, 31 August between 12-4pm) this is a chance to meet fellow parents before the girls even start school. All Grades are colour-coded, so you are sure to spot fellow Grade 6 parents, and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming for the whole family. Bring siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents to this lovely event, filled with food, fun and family!
  2. Whole-school PA coffee morning: Friday, 6 September 8.15-9.30am at School. All are welcome to these monthly meetings, which feature guest speakers from the school. Mrs Giblin always attends these meetings and gives a short round-up of what is happening at school. For the first meeting we will have a welcome from the Student Council President, and an introduction to how the School Council works (and how your daughter can get involved).
  3. Grade 6 coffee morning: Monday 16 September, 8-9am at School. Open to all of Grade 6 so you can get to know one another!

Grade 7 coffee morning: Tuesday 17 September, 8-9am at School. Open to all of Grade 7 so you can get to know one another!

Grade 8 coffee morning: Wednesday 18 September, 8-8:30am at School. Open to all of Grade 8 so you can get to know one another!
