Greetings from the PTA!

It is hard to believe how fast the first block of the school year has gone by. It seems that only a few short weeks ago we were enjoying the seaside with warm temperatures and now we find ourselves with falling leaves and cooler afternoons. Most of the PTA’s activities this block have focused on organisation and planning.

I would like to thank all of the parents who were able to come to the Annual General Meeting on September 12th. It is always nice to see familiar faces, but we were thrilled to have so many new parents as well. The next PTA meeting will be held on 11 October at 0800 in the Assembly Hall. This will coincide with the Coffee with the Principal meeting.

We are also thrilled to announce that we have official Class Parent Representatives for ALL of the Early Years and Primary classes! We also have Class Parent Representatives for a few of the Secondary classes. A “thank you” to all who have volunteered your time and energy to be a Class Parent Representative! There are still Secondary classes in need of parents willing to fill this role. If you are interested, please contact the PTA Committee.

Lastly, there are several events happening during Block 2 that you and your children should know about:

11 October - Teacher/Staff Appreciation Day

Class Parent Representatives and students are already working to show their gratitude! If you would like to be involved, please contact your Class Parent Representative or the PTA Committee via ClassList.

26 October - Ljubljana Marathon

Students, staff and parents are encouraged to come to the marathon and run (or just cheer loudly for their mates!). More information for this event will follow after the break and will be posted to ClassList.

30 October - Halloween Celebration

There will be a Halloween event this year at BISL! More information about event details will follow. If you are interested in helping with this event, please join the group on ClassList.

Have a wonderful break!

Gabrielle Kim, PTA Chair
