Elementary students will get their food in their class. Secondary students will be free to jump from country table to country table in the cafeteria and on the second floor.
  2. PTA donates a gift of 1000 US$ to HIS to support the drama program for both Elementary and secondary.
  3. Hoodies for HIS students: PTA supports the ideas to make special hoodies for HIS students. Secondary students will work on the design.
  4. Parents concerns:
  • CCP: CCP terms are too short for students to learn new skills. Some CCPs have only very few students. Suggestion: (1) CCP terms could be longer (2 terms per school year), (2) After each term or each school year students could demonstrate what they have learned.
  • Student Lunch Card – advantages and disadvantages were discussed. The school will discuss with the caterer.
  • How to get more parents involve in the PTA meeting and parent activities? Suggestion: organise a PTA meeting in the early morning when parents bring their children to school.
