ABOUT US

Our mission


The main goal of the Park Parents Association (PPA) is to represent the parents and guardians (as associates) of all campuses of the PaRK International School (Park-IS), to promote their involvment in relevant aspects of school life. We strive to be an active part of the school community as well as on the educational process provided by PaRK IS.


Main Objectives for PPA 2021-2023

1. Promote parental participation in the school community:

  • Activate communication channels (website, newsletter or email updates) to bring the school community closer together;

  • Implement year-group representatives (per year/campus) to identify subjects of interest to parents and students in school-related matters;

  • Promote sessions / lectures with specialists on topics relevant to the school community (parenting, personal, social and educational development of children, new technologies, etc.).

2. Strengthen school-PPA relationships and streamline relevant information:

  • Keep a regular calendar of meetings to keep up with the school's pedagogical project and to be able to address current and future issues;

  • Define common areas of interest, where PPA can support the school.

3. Support new parents / students in school integration:

  • Organization of social / informative events for new parents (welcome breakfasts, buddy system);

  • Organization of welcome events for new students;

  • Promotion of events that foster exchange and cultural diversity represented in the school (eg Diwali, Chinese New Year, Halloween, etc.).

4. Provide a better school environment for our children as well as all school-related staff:

  • Development of actions that promote respect for the environment at school (e.g. waste management, water consumption, reuse of school materials, etc.);

  • Organization of fundraising events which will revert to fund some improvements to be applied in school, playground, technology, etc.;

  • Strengthen the spirit of collaboration and sharing of the PaRK community through actions / events in which everyone's participation is coordinated (eg Parent / Student Volunteer Program in Punctual Activities);
