Parent Teacher Association
Welcome to the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) pages on our website! We would like to introduce you to our team of parents and we would also like to inform you about our activities. After learning more about us , please feel free to reach out to any of us for more information.
Who are we
The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) stands for building a community and strengthening partnership between school, students and parents. The PTA is a voluntary group of parents who play an important and active role in this partnership.
Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much. - Helen Keller, American author
What we do
We provide a platform for parents who are interested in being active members of our community to support us in making the school a better place for our children as well as offering support that will help them settle into this new environment. PTA membership is voluntary.
Come and join us
You as a parent can contribute and help us build a community that serves us all and in the best way to support your children in this important period of life.
Your opinion and ideas matter. Please do share them with us.
By joining us you can support your child in many ways (many is better than best) and also benefit enormously by:
- connecting with parents and teachers,
- contributing to the development of the Teaching and Learning Policy and projects,
- being involved in the recruitment process of heads of academic programmes,
- creating new social contacts and increase chances of job opportunities for trailing spouses,
- having the opportunity to learn new skills and discover new hobbies or passions,
- experiencing joy of volunteering and connecting with people who strive to make positive change.
The PTA meets once a month. An invite will be sent to the parents by the school including information about the date, time and agenda of the meeting. These meetings are open to all parents and staff. Our meetings are informal and parents are encouraged to communicate their views and share their concerns about school life. The meetings give an opportunity to share news about school activities, projects and information that the PTA board needs to share based on their meetings with the RISS Leadership team. Issues raised at these meetings are brought to the school management's attention, as we all value the importance of building a strong community together.
