The PTA supports the school and students in numerous activities and events throughout the school year.
The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) has a strong tradition since its inception at BIS. The PTA has been very successful raising funds to support student experiences. One of our main aims is fundraising to help assist the most number of students over the longest period of time. We aim to raise funds to purchase items that fall outside the normal scope of school funding. We also bring the community together with social events and activities. Also, we give back to the community by donating 12.5% of all funds raised to our chosen charities.
Our main fundraising event is the annual school fair which we generally hold in October or November. Our fair is always a success thanks to the combined effort of the vendors, parents, staff, students and, of course, all our volunteers on the day.
Over the years, the PTA has purchased numerous items for the school that have assisted the music, science, P.E., the library and general classroom departments. This shows how the PTA has been able to assist in a range of programs/subjects within the whole school at one time or another.
The PTA frequently hosts our ‘famous’ sausage sizzles, where PTA members and willing parents volunteer to cook during live events such as sports or concerts.. We hold these throughout the school year.A lot of our funds are raised through these cookouts and without the tireless work of the school parents who volunteer their time these would not be so successful.
Other events the PTA have participated in include the Teacher Appreciation lunch would not be possible without even more food-related contribution from our parents.due to the contribution of food from parents. We also hold many bake sales after share times, monthly “Head of School”coffee mornings, monthly PTA meetings and other activities.
The success of the PTA is due to all our wonderful parents at BIS. Without them none of the above would be possible. The PTA thanks all the teachers, students, administration, cleaning and grounds staff, security, parents and our BIS friends for all their support and assistance we continually receive.
