Principal’s Message Sept 9, 15

How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity! Psalm 133:1

At this week’s Parent Association (PA) Annual General Meeting it was fantastic to have over 50 parents in attendance. This was by far our biggest ever PA meeting and it was exciting to see so many parents supporting the important work of the PA at NIS. A big thank you to all those who attended the meeting, and particularly to the 17 parents who nominated themselves to go on to the NIS Parent Association Standing Committee (NISPASC).

The NISPASC is the main body that provides links between parents and the school, and it is also very active in fundraising and organizing events which build the school community. The 8 member committee was voted in on Monday night and includes those in the photograph on the left.

However, the Parent Association is not just limited to these 8 committee members. All parents are invited to the PA meetings and can be involved in discussions and voting on decisions. Additionally, the PA is always looking for volunteers to help with events and to voice their opinions on various sub-committees. Please lend your support to the committee throughout the year as their work does provide significant tangible benefits for your child and the whole school community.
