The Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) aims to enhance the experiences and welfare of students and parents whilst at the European School. The main objectives of the PTA are to:
- encourage parental involvement in a range of school events
- strengthen relationships among parents, students, staff, leadership and the board
- facilitate the flow of information between parents and European School administration
The PTA also actively supports the European School community by planning, coordinating and running various social and fundraising events and activities that promote a sense of community at the school while raising funds to support activities and purchases that will enhance the educational opportunities offered to our students.
We hold monthly PTA meetings, where all parents are welcome to attend and take part in a discussion about school-related issues together with participating teacher representatives.
Every parent who enrolls a student at the European School is automatically a member of the PTA. In order to efficiently coordinate and carry out PTA projects, a new PTA Committee is elected every school year. At the European School, we have four PTA Committees –IB, AHS, Georgian Program, European Kindergarten committees. Each is led by a Chairperson who is elected as a representative of the parents for a one year term.
There are many ways to get involved in the PTA and we are always looking for new ideas. Please join us or contact the coordinators for more information.
Family Sports Day
On March 23, the European School PTA organized a family sports day. Teams from the Georgian Program and IB Program, consisting of parents and students, competed in fun sports activities. A special cup was awarded to the Georgian Program team for beating the IB team 3:2!
New Parents Welcome Event
On September 28, we hosted our annual Welcome Party for our new parents.
It was a lovely occasion to get to know each other, meet the faculty members and Parent-Teacher Association chairs. Guests were given a warm welcome by the academic director, PTA chairpersons and program coordinators. They were provided with an overview of involvement opportunities and essential details about how parents can support their children through their time at the European School. The evening was pleasant and informal, concluding with a cake-cutting ceremony.
