The University School Parent-Teacher Network
The University School’s Parent-Teacher Network (PTN) is a community of Parents, Teachers and other stakeholders of the school who work together to support the school’s activities, projects and enhancements with the aim to be an innovative primary school in Trinidad and Tobago.
Our children will spend 7 years of their lives at this school which celebrates its 65th anniversary this year (2019).
The school has produced world class citizens through its holistic approach to learning.
Parent Support is important for any successful school and your time, talent, expertise, interest, passion will be extremely valuable in the nurturing of our children’s lives.
To raise critical thinkers and leaders we must all work together to elevate the learning environment of the next generation.
How does one become a member?
As soon as your child is enrolled at the University School, each parent\guardian is automatically a member of the PTN.
