YIS is a wonderful community because of its extensive parental support and the volunteer contributions of people like you! PTSA meets once a month to update parents on what’s going on in the school, including an update from our head of school and student council representatives. This meeting is normally linked to a fun activity. In the past these have included guest speakers, workshops, arts, crafts and outings. Everyone is welcome including your toddlers!

Meeting agendas, minutes, financial statements and PTSA constitution are available through the PTSA section of the Parent Portal.

Would you like to join the PTSA team? Contact us! We are looking forward to getting to know you!
