It is that time of the year again; International Day is just around the corner so time to start preparing!
International Day will be celebrated on Friday, 10 November on the Primary Campus and on Friday, 17 November at the High School. As a tradition, PTG will be involved with the International Food Buffet at both campuses where each country will have its own ‘Food Stall’ and kids can sample different foods from around the world.
A country can only be represented in the International Food Buffet if at least one parent is willing to take on the role of country representative. The representative receives a list of all parents with children with the same nationality so they can contact them to help out.
Last year the 25 countries were represented:
Australia, Austria, Belgium, Britain, Bulgaria, Canada, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, Israel, Japan, Kenya, Korea, Madagascar, Netherlands, New Zealand, Philippines, Sweden, Switzerland, Tanzania, Thailand and USA.
Most country representatives from last year will help out again. If your country, big or small, seems to be missing from the list above, we ask you to please come forward to take on the role of country representative this year (either for one or both campuses).
We do realize that catering to a growing number of students might put a financial burden on parents. Therefore the PTG Committee and School Management have decided to make a small financial contribution to help covering the costs, it being understood that funds are limited.
The first coordination meeting with all country representatives, for both the Primary and High School, will be held in the High School Campus on Thursday 5 October 8.30 am (Exam Hall, 7th floor Blue Building). Parents can use the shuttle departing from Gate 5 at the Primary Campus to travel to the High School Campus.
We hope all country representatives can attend this meeting.
