Welcome Message from the BIS PTG!
The Parent Teacher Group (PTG) is made up of all parents and teachers in this school. Throughout the year, we organise school events for parents, teachers and also children. These events are an opportunity to create a new social network.
The mission of the Parent Teacher Group (PTG) at the Primary Campuses (Early Years and Infant Campus and Junior Campus), British International School (BIS), Ho Chi Minh City is to positively impact the lives of all our children and families. The PTG maintains a close working relationship between parents, staff and children and it is our goal to enhance and strengthen these relationships by encouraging the growth of the community spirit within our school. The PTG does this by providing social events, fun activities and fundraising events throughout the school year. Some past favourites are the Parent/Teacher Social Night, School Discos, Family Fun Event, Global Café, Spring Fair and Bake Sales.
Volunteering in the PTG is a great way to start to integrate with the existing school population. Parent involvement in school life is an important factor in a child’s success. Please consider joining one of our event committees, sign up to be a class parent or sign up to sell tickets to some of the events. When we have bigger events like the Spring Fair and Family Picnic, we will need more volunteers to man stalls, sell drinks and organise the day. We need parent participation and volunteers in order to be able to run school-wide events. Volunteering your time will help you settle in quickly as you start to understand the mechanics of how each event is run, and also how the school system works.
If you want to stay informed about what is happening in school – always read the Friday Weekly Update sent by the Head Teachers.
