Welcome to ISPTA

Dear Parents,

The Island School Parent Teacher Association (ISPTA) would like to extend a warm welcome to all families to the Island School community for the 2020/21 academic year.

ISPTA contributes to the Island School community by providing support on initiatives that enhance the overall learning experience for our children. We work to build an environment where everyone feels that they belong. ISPTA facilitates discussion between parents and school on matters relating to education and school life, and on its part represents the views of parents within the school and ESF.

Join the community, get connected, stay informed, ask questions, share experiences and enjoy the Island Spirit

If you would like to join our ISPTA Parent WhatsApp year group chats, please fill in the online form. Existing members are automatically carried forward to the next year group. The chats are moderated by the ISPTA committee members. Parents who volunteer their time and talent for the ISPTA are the heart of the Island School community. Please consider signing up on the same online form for volunteer work. There are several ways in which you can involve yourself with the ISPTA.

Your membership supports the community

All families automatically become ISPTA members when they join Island School, and your annual membership fee allows us to support the school and enhance the learning experience of our children. ISPTA sponsors initiatives and activities such as equipment for various school departments and wellbeing resources. We organize and support various school events and activities, as well as information sessions and get-togethers for parents. For more details of our events & contributions, please check this link.

Please note that the payment of the annual PTA membership fee is mandatory as per ESF Ordinance and Regulations. The ISPTA annual fee is $700 (per family), and will be billed by the ESF Centre’s Central Billing on our behalf. The invoice was mailed in June 2020, please follow the instructions – note that the cheque should be payable to English Schools Foundation. You can also send the cheque via ISPTA’s mailbox (No.2) located at both campuses by end August. If you are unable to pay by cheque, please contact the ISPTA Office for further instructions.

 

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at pta@online.island.edu.hk

We look forward to your support of the ISPTA and wish you and your family a wonderful year ahead at Island School.

 

Kind regards,

ISPTA Committee
