The Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) aims to enhance the experiences and welfare of students and parents whilst at ISH. The main objectives of the PTA are to:
- encourage parental involvement in a range of school events
- strengthen the relationships among parents, students, staff, leadership and the board
- raise funds to finance projects that enhance ISH students’ education.
- facilitate the flow of information between the parents and ISH administration.
- provide assistance for new ISH families
The PTA also actively supports the ISH 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 support school events such as the annual PYP Halloween party, Festival of Lights Winter Concert and Career Day and we are planning several larger PTA events, including an International Food Fair. In addition to these events, we also organise regular bake sales and coffee/lunch gatherings for parents.
We hold monthly PTA meetings, where all parents are welcome to attend and take part in discussion about school-related issues together with participating teachers and student representatives. Please see this page for dates of our upcoming PTA meetings as well as meeting minutes for all meetings.
Every parent who enrolls a student at ISH is automatically a member of the PTA, and each family is required to pay an annual DKK 250,- PTA fee at the beginning of the school year, which is used to fund PTA initiatives and events throughout the year. In order to efficiently coordinate and carry out PTA projects, a PTA Committee is elected every school year. Read more about the PTA committee and other volunteer opportunities in the PTA here.
There are many ways to get involved in the PTA and we are always looking for new ideas. Please join us at our next meeting or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
