Welcome to Early Childhood

As Early Childhood (EC) Liaisons we hope to make you feel welcome and we are responsible for clear communication between EC parents, the PSO and EC Administration.  In doing this, we work very closely with the Home Room Coordinators in each EC class.

We are looking forward to meeting you all and feel free to approach either of us whenever you have questions or concerns.

Welcome to High School

Our role is to act as facilitators of communication between the High School (HS) administration, the HS Academic & College Counseling Department and the parents of your grade level. We are the parents’ link to the PSO board; and we also support the Head of Year’s, the Advisors, and the HS student council as needed.

Among others, this is achieved by co-arranging formal HS Information Meetings by grades, organising informal information sessions, coffees/lunches, by keeping parents informed by email, and by regularly meeting/communicating with the Principal, Chris Walker, Assistant Principal Bo Wood, the Academic Deans and the College Counselors etc., and the student council throughout the year.

We have three children at ACS Cobham – sons Owen in grade 11 and Brennan in grade 9 and daughter Amelia in grade 6.
