Open Doors is an Association. We employ all of the teaching staff and the Administrator.
Each and every parent of each child enrolled at Open Doors automatically becomes a member of the Association for the academic year. The Association is overseen by a small team of parents who volunteer to join a committee elected each year at the AGM.
At minimum, the required officers/committee members are President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. Furthermore, other parents can be elected if willing to serve on the committee and participate in the Association’s life to help achieve its goal in supporting our children improve and learn, and providing a very high level of quality English teaching.
The current committee is comprised of parents who have been part of Open Doors for most of their child’s time spent with us. Their children are nearing the end of their education at Open Doors; we therefore need new blood to help run the school.
Legally, we need an elected group of parents to come forward as volunteers to form a committee for next year and beyond. The roles are not onerous in terms of time required to oversee the running of the school. The administrator is required to run the school with the guidance and help of the parents via the committee.
Please contact Shirley, our administrator, or myself, if you would like to become involved and ensure the perennity of Open Doors.
It is a wonderful adventure that began in 1986, nearly 40 years ago. I can only hope many of our members, sensing how vital their contribution, will feel the urge to join the committee as soon as the next AGM to help shape and run our children’s school for the years to come.
Please contact Shirley at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
