Parent Teacher Association


Welcome to Forest House’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA). Here, you'll discover how the unique approach of Waldorf education and the PTA play a vital role in supporting the school community. Our pedagogy nurtures the whole child—mind, body, and spirit—and the PTA fosters a strong partnership between parents, teachers, and the school.

Mission and Goals

The Forest House Waldorf School Parent Teacher Association (FHWS PTA) exists to connect parents and teachers, and to build a strong Waldorf community of FHWS. Our mission is to promote collaboration, engagement, and meaningful connections among parents, teachers, and students. The FHWS PTA does not only offer an opportunity to be involved in the general welfare of the students, but we also organise activities and events for the parents and children throughout the year.

Our PTA is committed to creating a thriving and inclusive community that supports the principles and values of Waldorf education. We strive to enhance the educational experience of the community by organising events, providing resources, and fostering a warm and supportive environment for all.

Collaboration with Teachers

Collaboration between parents and teachers is at the heart of our culture. We create a harmonious learning community through supporting educational programmes like the Parental Educational Programme, fostering a strong bond between home and school, and working hand in hand to create a nurturing environment for our students.

Parent Education

We believe in lifelong learning and continuous growth. Our PTA organises informative workshops, seminars, and lectures that cater to the interests and needs of parents. These sessions provide valuable insights into Waldorf education, child development, and parenting topics. Join us for engaging conversations and gain practical knowledge that can enrich your parenting journey.

Events and Activities

Stay up to date with our exciting calendar of events and activities! Our PTA supports the school during the seasonal festivals and school performances. We arrange craft workshops and a variety of enriching experiences for the entire community. Some of the activities include:

Craft Group: Held every Friday morning.
Spring Fair: A fund-raising event celebrated annually before Easter.
Mid-Autumn Festival Night
Dragon Boat Event: Held during the Dragon Boat Festival.

Join us in celebrating the beauty of each season, engaging in activities that deepen our connection with nature, the arts, and each other.
