It was wonderful to see them sharing their experiences about the school and the city. Being in a new city and the school can be overwhelming for a lot of us, and the newcomers used this opportunity to share their concerns with the other parents and teachers.
A big thanks to all the parents who have contacted the PTG and offered help. We are also looking for Country and Class Representatives. Alternatively, you may help and/or run one of our Events.

By volunteering as a Class Parent Representative you will help to pave the way for communications between the teacher and parents, and also from the PTG to parents. Key areas of responsibility are:
- to serve as a contact for (new) families in your class
- to disseminate information from the PTG to all class parents about events in school

If you have a passion for your culture and a yearning to introduce your country to our school community, please sign up as a Parent Country Representative. Your key responsibility will be around Global Cafe and International Week in January 2020 (date to be confirmed). You will also serve as the first port of call for new families wanting to get in touch with others from your country.

The main Primary PTG Committee is now set up, but of course, we are looking for parents to volunteer on different event Committees for the 2019-2020 school year. The events run by parents for the BIS students adds to the social fabric of the school. Please consider signing up to any of the committees that BIS is going to need to run all the events. Remember, if an event does not have a committee to organise or volunteers to help, it won’t run. This sign up list is to create a steering Committee; the Committee will be in charge of coordinating the event. The school will help with the logistics and the funds needed to run each event.
Please do not hesitate to contact the PTG at the email address below: email@example.com.
Saturday Morning Football (SMF)
We currently need parents to come forward to help with the administration and coaching to make this important club happen.
This is a parent-led activity for Year 2-6 BIS children held each Saturday during school term time on the Junior Campus field.
- 8-9am: Boys & Girls Y4-6
- 9-10am: Boys & Girls Y2-3
Parents do not need to be professional coaches/players, just need to have a love of football and enjoy working with the children.
If you are interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The PTG will also do its annual football boot/kit collection to donate to our community partners. Any old boots and kits your children have grown out of, please keep to donate - collections boxes will be at both campuses soon.

For those of you who are new to the city join our PTG bus tour on Friday 6th September. Get to know your town as we take you around District 1 and 2. This starts at 8:15am and will finish around 1:00pm. Meet at the Secondary Campus Auditorium and email email@example.com to reserve your place.
