Parent Teacher Association
Our role is to encourage closer links between home and school. We organize social events, together with parents and teachers, and with those fun events we raise funds for projects in school and charities outside of school.
At the beginning of each term we welcome the new parents and give them information about school and living in Jakarta.
The PTA has monthly meetings which are open to everyone, to discuss events and how to help.
Some events we have organized in 2015/16:
Jakarta Know How for the new parents, a Family Picnic in September and Halloween in October. To end the year there was a Santa’s Grotto with Christmas Bazaar and we provided mulled wine and mince pies for the Christmas Concert.
In January we had a great Primary Book Sale. With Chinese New Year we decorated the Secondary Foyer and asked Lion and Dragon dancers to perform. We handed out fresh watermelon to the students at Primary Sports Days.
Our biggest fundraiser of the year is the Country Fair, which was held in April. To end the year a Yard Sale and the Annual General Meeting with a Goodbye Picnic will be held.
We have bought a washing machine for KS1, gave money to Year 6 and IB Graduation, Formals, KS3 Disco, Year 10 students project, KS2 playground and table tennis tables for Secondary. Outside charities: Yayasan Al Mutarif (school fees), food for scavenger kids at events, student fees Goodwill International, BWA Mobile Library, ANZA students and Lombok Forgotten Children.
You can find our newly opened PTA room upstairs, next to the Secondary Cafeteria.
Here you will find 'lost and found' items as well, starting Term 3.
We always need help from parents: organizing events or helping at an event, please come in anytime to find out more!
