The current PTA team (we always welcome offers of help or people to step forward with thoughts and ideas) is run through a committee of willing soles and chaired by Sabrina. Fiona is the secretary, our Treasurer is Verena, Events lead is Petra, Kim looks after New Parents, Bar Manager is Ellen, Room parent co-ordinators are Cindy and Susan (for now any volunteers?), Isabella co-ordinates our volunteers and runs the e-mail (PTA@bisspuxi.com">PTA@bisspuxi.com) and Hugh looks after our communications.
There are a number of events run throughout the school year and there are always opportunities for parents to lend a hand, skill or share ideas. Drop a mail to the PTA address above or look out for the specific requests relating to the various events.
Speaking of which: Here are the next few major events.
19 September the BISS Puxi Welcome back party - Last year we had over 1400 teachers, parents and children joining us and enjoying great food, drinks and probably the best band in Shanghai. Tickets are 60RMB per adult and children come free but will be issued tickets so we can manage the numbers. Letters have been sent home with students this week or email PTA@bisspuxi.com" style="font-size: 1em; line-height: 1.5;">PTA@bisspuxi.com if you have not seen the letter. Volunteers welcomed to help man the bar, entrance setting up and set down of the event.
Save the date Saturday 17 October – The Ball – a black tie dinner and dance at Holiday Inn in Minhang. More details to follow but it promises to be great fun (for parents, their friends and teachers only).
That’s all for now but make sure you have your tickets for the Welcome Back Party by 11 September.
