It may be the last day of Term 3, and the PTA Committee is already looking ahead to September; but first...
A big thank you to Morwenna Franssens and Lindsay Blackford, as well as best wishes on their new adventures as they leave Kuala Lumpur to return to the UK. Both have been intrinsic members of the PTA Committee, with Morwenna having led the team as Chair - you will both be very much missed and we will endeavour to keep up your good work!
We would like to introduce the new PTA Committee as of 1st September. Although we come together as one whole school PTA Committee, we endeavour to ensure that each campus is equally represented by parent volunteer members.
Representing the Primary Campus at Jalan Bellamy (JB): Alex Williams (Chair); Tracy Leach (JB Group Leader); Anand Rampersaud (JB Welcome Group); Gen Harding (Class Rep Co-ordinator) and Sharianne Quirk.
Representing the Secondary Campus at Equine Park (EP): Maheswari Ghantala (Treasurer); Willemien Van Der Does (EP Group Leader); Helen Lynch (EP Welcome Group); Suk Ng and Jessica Lim.
Here’s our mission statement to reinforce what KLASS PTA is all about: To build community within the whole school through events and activities which involve students, teachers and their families; to create a welcoming and vibrant school community by supporting new families in their transition to Alice Smith and Kuala Lumpur.
Look out for details of our first respective campus Group Meetings in September: Secondary (EP) on Tuesday 15th September and Primary (JB) on Tuesday, 22nd September.
All parents are welcome to attend the campus group meetings where we will pass on information about KLASS PTA events, initiatives and share ideas.
Further dates to look forward to next year: Halloween Spookfest at JB on 31st October, Christmas Bazaar on 12th December, and the Summer Fair on 25th June – it’s all happening so note them on your calendar NOW!
Have a great holiday everybody, we’ll see those of you returning (plus welcoming new faces!) next term; good luck and best wishes to all who are leaving Alice Smith for pastures new!
