The IICS Parent Teacher Association (PTA), which includes the Booster Club, is a very active organization in our school community. The PTA coordinates terrific events throughout the year, fosters school-family interaction, and brings the community closer. To welcome new families, the PTA hosts newcomer coffee mornings, and its Welcome Committee reaches out to incoming families who arrive during the year.
Even prior to arrival in Istanbul, new IICS parents are put in touch with families from their own nationality and native language. They are also introduced to other parents from their child’s class. All parents are also provided with a contact list of students on their child’s bus. This helps them learn who else lives in their neighborhood.
