The parent association of Raffles World Academy (PARWA) has always been an active one. We currently comprise of 21 dedicated volunteer parents on the executive committee of PARWA whose sole aim is to enhance the learning experience of all RWA children.

Our motto is 'Empowering Future Generations' and we have been and will keep on doing so with our numerous academically inclined focus groups and initiatives. We used to be called Paris (West Campus) Till 2016-17, but rebranded ourselves to Parwa last year. Our Parent Association was established in 2006 and we have come a long way since then. We function on an integrated model where we work hard with the school management, faculty, students and parents.
