Hello From The PTA

27 augustus 2015

Welcome to or welcome back to BISS from the Parent Teacher Association (PTA)!

The PTA New Parent Group will be in touch with new parents and we hope that you will feel able to ask the team anything either school or Shanghai related – we were all new to the city and or BISS Puxi at some point! 

If we don’t know the answer, we will probably know someone who does. Kim and her team would love to hear from you and you can always visit the Facebook page to get in touch.

To get the year underway, they will be hosting their first lunch at “Ubiquity” a local Chinese restaurant on Tuesday 1 September at 12.30pm. Situated in the Fashion Park Mall Corner of Jinfeng Lu and 569 Yunle Road Minhang District, parents who wish to attend please RSVP to bissnewparents@gmail.com by Friday 28 August.

If you cannot attend this event, please look out for their stand at the Welcome Back Party.

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) 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 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.
