Friends of Dulwich

Friends of Dulwich is an integral and supportive part of our community. All parents are members of the Friends of Dulwich and many parents choose to become active in the organisation. Parents can choose to serve on the Friends of Dulwich Committee, act as Class Parent Representatives, take part in social activities, or volunteer to help with the many charitable events sponsored by Friends of Dulwich.

Friends of Dulwich welcome new families to the College and offer significant support to families settling into life at the College and in Suzhou. 

In the past years, the FoD Executive Committee hosted various events such as informal parent get-togethers, charity fundraisers, Coffee Mornings, Family Fun Days, Quiz Nights, Christmas Shopping Trips, and FoD sponsored the Sports Days. On top of that, FoD organised the annual Charity Ball and was involved in the organisation of the Founder’s Day. 

The FoD Executive Committee
The FoD Committee is run by 12 elected parent representatives and 3 school representatives, who meet regularly throughout the academic year. All parent representative members are elected during the Annual General Meeting (AGM). The AGM is open to all Dulwich parents, and it is a great opportunity for parents to be informed about past and upcoming events and projects, and to elect the next FoD Executive Committee members. 

Committee Members are elected for a 12-month period. However, in order to better reflect the term of the executive committee to that of the academic year and to allow for sufficient time for transition and planning for events for the upcoming year, the Committee has decided that starting from 2019, the AGM will take place in the month of May - after Founders’ Day. As such, the incoming committee of 2018 will stay in their positions until the end of May 2019. 

If you would like to be the voice of our parent body; to make a difference through our wonderful charity projects and to continue the legacy of FoD contribution to the school and local communities, please click on this link to learn more about the roles and responsibilities in which you could be involved, and to fill out the application form by Wednesday, 28 February 2018. All current members who would like to continue joining the committee should also send in their application form. 

Candidates for each of the 12 positions of the FoD Executive Committee will be announced by the first week of March and members will be elected during the AGM meeting on Friday 16 March 2018. 

All Dulwich parents are cordially invited to attend the annual AGM to vote for the next FoD executive members. Your votes are very important to ensure that we elect the most suitable candidates to run our FoD executive committee, who will be representing the whole parent community.
