TISPA Roles

The committee structure is comprised of members from the Executive Committee (elected), Subsidiary Committees Heads (elected), Committee Members (Volunteers), the Parent Liaison Officer (Volunteers) and Class Representatives (Volunteers).

Annual Committees

Education Committee – Helps to enrich and broaden children’s education and to raise awareness of different campaigns TISPA may be organizing.

Events Committee – Responsible for events such as the Mid Autumn Festival, Christmas Wonderland, Easter Raffle, and other fundraising initiatives.

Parent Liaison Officer and Class Rep Committee – Main contact for all Class Representatives. Will act as the Head Class Representative and schedule meetings, determine the agenda and organize forums for a 2-way communication regarding school and TISPA.

Class Representatives

Class Representatives have a vital role to play within the school. Not only are they the liaison between the class teacher and the class parents, they are also active in promoting a sense of community amongst the parents. Other roles might include:

  • Compiling a class telephone tree and email contacts. This will be used for emergencies, such as the closure of school for a typhoon or black rainstorm warning.
  • Encouraging a sense of “school” community amongst the parents.
  • Encouraging other parents to participate in school activities.
  • Lending a helping hand from time to time.

The Parent Liaison Officer will be our main contact and any relevant issues should be reported to her.

The role of Class Representative does not extend to issues relating to teaching or issues with individual students. Parents should talk to teachers individually regarding their own child. If there is an issue with a teacher, which cannot be resolved, the parent should then raise the matter with the Principal.
