Welcome back to school and a special warm welcome to all of you who are new to KL and Alice Smith!
We hope everyone had a great summer break. It’s been fantastic to meet so many new faces this week during our coffee mornings; don’t forget you can always approach a member of the PTA Committee (spot our big white and blue PTA badges!) with any questions and we’ll do our best to answer and/or point you in the right direction!
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.”
With that statement in mind, our first event this term is something new for us, the ‘Welcome Back Picnic Social’ this Sunday 4th September at EP (Equine Park - Secondary Campus) from 10am to 1pm. The morning is meant to welcome new families into our community and of course, welcome back existing families. It will be an opportunity for all families to learn about some of the different clubs, societies and volunteering opportunities available in KL. Bring a picnic if you’d like; we’re always inviting a small selection of food vendors and drinks will be on sale. We’re also planning some fun activities for the kids to keep them busy and it’s a great opportunity to get a look at the fantastic secondary campus. Adults, don’t forget to wear your Identity tag for security purposes - we hope to see you there!

Looking even further ahead, members of the PTA Committee are pleased to be involved in the planning of the 70th Anniversary Platinum Gala Ball on the evening of Friday 11th November. Formal invitations were sent out by the school along with details of other 70th anniversary activities before the end of last term. The cost is RM350 per person which includes a 4-course meal and free flow drinks. This will be a wonderful opportunity to celebrate this milestone with friends of the school - past and present. Tables are already being snapped up for what is promising to be an unforgettable and glitzy occasion. Click here for the booking form and/or request further information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org; you can also access these links via www.alice-smith.edu.my (click on ‘KLASS 70’, top right of the Home page, then follow the link to the list of anniversary activities).
Following that our next big event is the annual Christmas Bazaar, a festive fundraiser for the whole family! Note the date, Saturday 3rd December at JB, in your diary now and look out for details of planning meetings as they’ll be commencing very soon!
