The Norwegian International School (NIS) parents are key stakeholders of our community. Their support and positive contributions are highly valued at all levels and help make our school an even better place. Through the Parent & Teacher Association (PTA), parents collectively support the school community and Principal to achieve the School’s aims and objectives.
Membership of the PTA is free; all parents of students attending NIS are automatically members. Collectively, NIS parents offer an invaluable skill set making a significant contribution towards the School’s fundraising efforts. All funds go directly towards educational support or reading materials.
During the academic year, the PTA organizes various activities for the benefit of our students and parents. Over the years these have included the School’s Chinese New Year Fair, Christmas Silent Auction and Festive Fair, Community Fair BBQ, hot lunches, traditional bake sales, chocolate and ribbon making workshops.
The Principal meets with the PTA community on a monthly basis giving parents the opportunity to share their views and ideas. Regular communications also include our weekly newsletters and email circulations.
Members of the PTA executive committee are elected on a yearly basis and all parents are encouraged to participate to either undertake a position of office or involve yourself with PTA activities.
A PTA welcome letter and membership form is distributed near the beginning of the school year and there is a short introduction to the PTA during curriculum evening in September.
The NIS Community looks forward to welcoming you and your family on board.
