We achieve this through a variety of social events for both the family and parent’s only, as well as by assisting teachers at school and sporting events.
Welcoming new families into the BISS Puxi community also falls under the umbrella of the PTA and our team of volunteers looks forward to helping new parents during the settling in process through the New Parent Programme (NPP). We also have a group of parents who volunteer as Country Ambassadors on standby should you like to connect with someone from your home country.
Most of our social events allow us to do a bit of fund raising, which helps us to support charities in our community. In the past, Heart to Heart and the Huaxin Rehabilitation Centre have benefited from the generosity of parents.
All parents are part of the PTA as soon as your children join the school. The PTA is spearheaded by a committee of parents who have experience in and around the school.
We urge you to diarize the events planned for the 2016/2017 academic year, which are as follows:
Sat 10 Sep 2016: Welcome Back Party – full family
Sat 5 Nov 2016: PTA Dance Party – adults only
Sat 3 Dec 2016: Christmas Fair – full family
Sat 18 Mar 2017: International Food Evening – adults only
Sat 6 May 2017: Garden Party – full family
The Room Parent System in both the Secondary and Primary Schools is also an important function served by the PTA. The Room parent coordinators sit on the PTA committee and they act as a liaison between the parents and the Heads of School.
We welcome parents who would like to volunteer their time either assisting at events or offering their time as a room parent for their child’s year group.
There are a number of ways you can contact us:
The PTA’s email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. The NPP’s email address is email@example.com.
We also have Facebook presence – search for “BISS Puxi New Parent & PTA Programme” or click here.
We look forward to hearing from you.
