Parent Association

The Parent Association is a group of dedicated parents working with the school to enhance the environment and experience of all involved at Canadian School Bahrain. The group works to build a sense of community and togetherness within the school families. The Parent Association's purpose is to support the school’s mission to develop students who are confident in their culture, empowering them to achieve academic excellence through nurturing moral values of integrity, responsibility, respect, and courage.

They do this by:
