We understand that at junior/senior high school, the direct parent involvement will be less compared to elementary school as students become more independent. WIC still provides opportunities for parent involvement. The Parent Guild is a parent volunteer hub, which organizes a few events over the school year, such as the Parent Social, WIC gala, etc. The one we really enjoyed is the annual staff appreciation dinner. Many parent volunteers came together to prepare a theme-based dinner for all staff to enjoy, from donating cooked food and drinks to decorating the room and cleaning up afterward. This is a fun event and was very well received and appreciated by all school staff members. The school is very open to parent suggestions and opinions through coffees with the headmaster, surveys, and board meetings. WIC also sends out a weekly newsletter email to all students and families announcing anything that happened in the past week and anything planned for the next week so that students and parents can stay on top of what’s going on around the school.

I don't remember the school community while I was a student, however after graduating I came to learn a community exists and stays very engaged. Student's parents are treated as alumni too and there are lots of opportunities for parents to come together to contribute to the school. The alumni community is growing every day. As a "younger" independent school, the alumni community is still developing and gaining strength. I am still in touch with peers from my year and have lots of opportunities to connect with people from other years in the events the school organizes specifically for alumni. The school also gives opportunities for alumni to give back to the school by engaging with the students in talks, judging competitions, and attending speaker events.
