About PTA

ABOUT PTA

As a school, we are committed to working in partnership with parents in order to achieve the very best education possible.

Parents support us in a number of ways:

First and foremost, we ask parents to take an active interest and involvement in their children’s work at school and their progress. This will include monitoring and supporting their work at home, signing their homework planner and encouraging them to take full advantage of the wide range of opportunities on offer at school. SIS PTA holds Annual General Meeting in Term One, at which we like to see all parents and teachers to attend. There are other information and education evenings during the year to keep parents informed about various aspects of school life.

The PTA expects SIS parents to contact us should they have any worries or concerns about any aspect of their children’s education or progress. The PTA strongly encourages all parents to be involved with us and to support our social, educational and fund raising activities which enhance the overall learning experience for SIS students.

HONOUR WITH BOOKS

The SIS PTA invites you to participate in an exciting project designed to allow you to pay lasting tribute to a student by placing a newly purchased book and bookplate in the school library collection. We invite you to donate a book for academic honours, birthday, graduation or any other events that are special to you and your family. Our librarian will purchase a book(s) and a bookplate with your child’s name placed in the front. Your child’s name will also be displayed on the Honour with Books Programme TV outside the library.

Over the years, SIS PTA has made donations on behalf of the leaving Teachers and retiring PTA Committee Members to recognize their dedication and commitment to the school and the students.

Honour with Books order forms can be CLICK HERE or obtained from the PTA office in the school foyer. For inquiry, please email the PTA Coordinator at pta@sis.edu.hk
