As this school year comes to an end, we would like to thank the Senior Leadership Team and the school staff for supporting our community-building efforts and once again eagerly welcoming us back on campus. Special thanks as always goes to all of the PTA volunteers who have helped make all of the above possible this year. 

We say ‘au revoir’ to our current PTA Chair Jelena Krzanicki and the PTA Committee member Andrea Williams, who are both returning to their home countries this summer. The new PTA Chair will be Karina Kalinowska and the Committee has grown to include a few new members, who are all eager to welcome you back in August.

PTA EVENTS CALENDAR 2023-2024

We have already put together a draft calendar of events for next year, which can be accessed HERE. The PTA Committee will be in touch before the school year begins with further shop opening hours and event information.

 

In the meantime, we wish a restful and sunny summer break! 

 

Warm regards,

Your PTA Committee
