Treverton Gauteng Parent’s Association (TGPA)
Pro-Active Parents in Partnership and Participation
The TGPA’s purpose is to encourage and facilitate interaction between parents and the schools as well as raise funds for the College and the Prep with special emphasis on the needs of boarders.
Opportunities for Interaction
The TGPA hosts a number of regular functions during the year which are designed to give parents the opportunity to hear from the school heads and to chat informally with the headmasters and teachers.
The Eating Meeting
In March 2014 the annual TGPA Eating Meeting was held at the Organic market in Bryanston. We had fantastic support from our parents who were joined by staff from the College and Prep. Whilst enjoying a wonderful picnic parents were given an update from the College and the Prep on how the new pupils have settled down, plans for upcoming year and other topics of a general nature. It was a wonderful opportunity for all the Gauteng parents to meet and chat with the teachers and other parents on an informal basis.
2018 Gauteng Parents/Teachers Eating Meeting to be confirmed
The Interactive AGM Evening
This is an AGM with a difference – informal, informative and to the point.
The College and Prep Headmasters give a quick review of the year and answer questions.
Come and participate in this important evening.

During the year the TGPA organizes one or more fun, fundraising activities, including live shows, quiz evenings and golf days as well as our regular, ongoing fundraiser, the Treverton Wish List Club.

Support our Boarders!
The Treverton Wish List Club is aimed at creating a home-away-from-home environment for our children. The “Wish List” funds all the nice little extras in the Boarding Houses to make them more comfortable. Each year the TGPA gives each boarding House a voucher for the children and Houseparents to choose nice-to-have items in dorm. Items purchased in the past include table tennis tables, flat screen TV’s, a tumble dryer, dart board, board games etc. ALL the boarders benefit, whether you are from KZN, Gauteng, Swaziland, Botswana, Zambia, UK or USA don’t delay and support the Treverton Wish List Club.

The TGPA runs two services for the benefit of the parents and children.
The Parcel Service
The parcel service coordinates the sending of parcels with parents going down during term time. It is specifically for those small forgotten items or unexpected treats. No bikes, trunks, horses etc. Just small parcels that are easy to fit into a family sized car!
The cost is R30.00 per packet (money goes into the fundraising kitty).
Please let us know when you are going down to Mooi River in order for the parcel service to work efficiently.
Contact: Michelle Gebhardt on 082 318 4888
Gauteng Bus Duty
Please allow for the heavy afternoon traffic when judging your arrival time and remember that the teachers who accompany your children still need to make the return trip back to school.
It is the responsibility of the parents to clarify departure and arrival times. Bus cell is 082 583 9145 or phone the school secretary on 033 263 1251. The bus arrives and departs from the Rosebank Union Church, cnr William Nicol Drive and St Andrews Road, Hurlingham.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING ALL NEW PARENTS!
