As you all are aware of the COVID-19 situation, the PA Meeting scheduled on March 17, 2020 needed to be cancelled. There are few updates which we would like to share with our community.
Resignation of PA President: It is sad to inform that our PAC--2020 president Megan Mclaughlin has decided to step down, with immediate effect because of personal reasons. We would like to thank Meghan for her continuous support to the PA for this term and wish she joins back the PA soon.
Finance Report: The PA successfully organized the first bake sale of the year 2020 and was able to make a profit for RM 1502. Thanks again to all the volunteers who helped at various stages in the bake sale.
Talks, Workshops, Food Circle and Events: All the talks, workshops, food circles and events including Yoga and Jungle Kids are suspended as of now. We hope to start them again once the school reopens.
Parent Connect Sessions: In lieu of the interest shown by our parents, the school has proposed to conduct parent connect sessions on diverse topics including, teenagers and online safety, learning enrichment and assessment tools, children and homework, and how to develop career opportunities for the 21st Century. In addition to this, at monthly PA meetings we will have short talks on topics like Service Learning.
Mother’s Day Stall: This was one of the agenda items for the March 17 meeting. Every year, our community members Tanya and Sam champion the Mother’s Day stall. It is in practice to pass the proposed budget for the Mother’s Day stall through voting at the PA Meeting, however, with the school being closed this could not happen. Therefore, we are pushing the Mother’s day stall as the agenda item for the next PA Meeting to discuss together the possible next steps.
Emergency General Meeting: We would also like to call for an Emergency General Meeting as several members of the PAC have proposed to dissolve the present committee and choose a new one. Though the members of the present PAC wanted to stay only until the end of Term 1, all members have agreed to continue until the new committee is formed i.e. until the upcoming EGM. Parents are strongly encouraged to volunteer for different roles at the new PAC. We will keep everyone informed on the confirmed dates for both PA Meeting and the EGM, as soon as we get some clarity.
Thank you everyone and express our gratitude to all who baked and made the sale a success!
Our bakers Chantal, Mercedeh, Fiona, Dharshini, Niken, Valerie W, Anna, Doreen, Chieng, Catherine, Rochelle, Jackie, Orapan, Frania & Stephanie!
And not forgetting our other volunteers Valerie L, Sophie, Parisa, Amy, Fion and Lilian.
