Parents' Council

All parents and guardians of children at TMC are members of the Parents‘ Council.
The activities of the Council are coordinated by the Parents‘ Council Executive. The Executive is a group of parents who have been elected in terms of the Constitution and are co-opted onto the Parents‘ Council at its AGM at the beginning of each year.
As the Constitution provides for 14 elected members of the Executive, additional members are co-opted either to assist with specific projects or to avoid willing people being excluded as a result of an election. At the first Parents‘ Council meeting after the AGM, the newly elected Executive (co-opted members do not have a vote) then elects a Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary. All the portfolio holders are also decided on.
