CISPTA, incorporated as Chinese International School PTA Limited, is the CIS Parents and Teachers Association. All parents or legal guardians of current CIS students and current full-time members of faculty and the school management are automatic members of CISPTA.
The mission of CISPTA is to build a vibrant and cohesive community among CIS families, which in turn will help complement and enhance our children's school life experience. To fulfill the mission, CISPTA promotes and facilitates open communication between parents and the school administration and encourages parent volunteerism in all areas of school life.
Chinese International School PTA Limited (CISPTA - you will hear us referred to as SISS- puh-tah) consists of all parents and guardians with a child at the school, in addition to full- time faculty and school management. CISPTA is governed by a General Committee (GC) that consists of 14 elected parents and each member is elected to a two-year term. Each spring there is a call for candidates. The GC meets monthly during the school year with the Headmaster, Deputy Head of School, Heads of the Primary and Secondary School, staff/teacher representatives and other key members of management to discuss matters important to the school community.
