PTG: Introductions

We hope you’ve had a refreshing holiday and are raring to go – just as we are at the PTG! The blank canvas of a new school year feels like a perfect opportunity to introduce ourselves to new parents.

PTG 2019-2020

First, our mission, as defined in our Constitution: to work together for the common good of our student body, and to foster goodwill and clear communication among parents, teachers, and students. As a parent, you are automatically a member of the PTG as soon as you join the school. The PTG is managed and represented by the PTG Committee, which is elected at the end of every school year at the AGM. The Committee currently consists of three Officers (Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary) and nine other members. A wide range of school years is represented on the Committee, from Primary through High School, ensuring that diverse interests are taken into account. 

Please see the photo and the caption above to put faces to names of your 12 PTG representatives for 2019/20!

The PTG Committee is a group of volunteers that works hard to make crucial events happen throughout the school year, including the International Days and Christmas Fairs on both campuses, Fun Day, and the end-of-year Summer Party. But we are not just ParTyorGanizers! 

We aim to strengthen relationships and facilitate communication between parents and school. We facilitate opportunities for students and school to meet their fundraising objectives. We assist the integration of new families to the school. We manage the lost-and-found as well as the collection and sales of second-hand uniforms. 

Also, by putting in place a wide selection of different parent sports and other activities, the PTG has contributed significantly to building a strong community of parents across the two campuses. And, importantly – what sometimes goes unnoticed is that PTG Committee members work tirelessly behind the scenes, with parents and with school, to resolve issues that may crop up.

An important forum enabling parents and school to communicate are the PTG meetings, of which we hold at least one per term. We strongly encourage parents to attend these meetings and to submit their topics for the agenda in advance. The Head of School attends each meeting, and other teaching staff may be requested to attend, as necessary.

A first PTG meeting will be held soon – you will be informed of the date and invited to submit your topics.

Staying up to date with the PTG 

The PTG has a Facebook group where you can find lots of useful information about St Andrews International School Bangkok as well as getting used to living in Bangkok if you are new to the city. If you would like to contact us about something specific, please don’t hesitate to get in touch by email on ptgchair@standrews.ac.th. Wondering who the Committee members are? Put faces to names by checking the school website or the PTG section of Moodle, which also contains our Constitution.
