★ Call for the PTSA Executive committee member and Spot volunteers ★

The main theme of the activities is to provide a platform where school members (parents, teachers, staff) can work together to enrich student’s school life.
We need the PTSA Executive committee member and spot volunteers of events.
Please join us!

PTSAは、子ども達の学校生活の向上を目指し、保護者・教師・スタッフが協力し合うことを活動の骨子としています。 その目的のため、私達は、役員 及び イベント毎のスポットボランティアを求めています。 
どうぞ、ご協力をお願いいたします。

When our group began, we decided to call ourselves the “PTSA” instead of the more usual “PTA”. This is because, in addition to involving parents and teachers, we believe that including other school staff members is important as well hence, the “S” in PTSA stands for “Staff”.

Parents who help the PTSA to enrich the school lives of our children are all volunteers. Some of us are homemakers, some of us care for our aging parents and some of us work at businesses both inside and outside of the home. But all of us have found many benefits from being involved in the PTSA. A few of the many benefits include knowing that we have enriched our children’s school experience, enjoying the company of other parents and enjoying the opportunity to use our time, energy and skills to help out with something meaningful.

As a parent of a Columbia International School student you, too, are a member of the PTSA. We are confident that if you choose to become a more active member you, too, will experience the many benefits of volunteering!

To give you a better idea of what it is we do and how you might like to get involved, here are some of the PTSA activities from over the past couple of years…

We have held workshops ranging from how to build and program robots to how to skip double-dutch. We also hosted a presentation from a Canadian children’s book author, a performance of English rakugo and a drumming group.

At the school’s Winter Fiesta, the PTSA hosts a fund-raising bazaar, runs a cafe and has games/crafts/stories/songs for the children. The PTSA also regularly enriches the school’s Halloween party with pumpkins for the children to carve, prizes for the best pumpkins and Halloween treats. Then, on Canada Day, for graduation and to welcome new students, we distribute gifts.

The PTSA also hosts its own special annual event a very successful Summer Festival! This enjoyable afternoon features delicious food, fun games and entertainment by both students and teachers. It’s a real community-building event! Also we updated the library in 2014-2015.

This year, in response to identified needs by the school community and in cooperation with the school, we are planning to update purchase some sports equipment and contribute to a school trip.

As you can see, there are many opportunities for you to become involved!

In addition, if you have a great idea, please share it with us. If you see a problem and can offer a good solution, please let us know. Let’s all work together to make the PTSA work even better for our children.

PTSA meetings are held at the school on the first Saturday of every month during the school year. Please come and join us! Together, we can work together for our children’s benefit.

We are looking forward to hearing from you and seeing you!


コロンビアインターナショナルスクールのPTAは、スタッフのSを加えてPTSAとして活動させていただいています。
PTSAは、クラスごとに委員を選出したり、役員を順番に行うものではなく、完全に有志が集まって活動しています。そのPTSA役員の多くは、仕事 や介護で忙しいなかで活動しています。それは、PTSAの活動を通して、自身の子どもたちの様子を実際に目で見たり、お友達や先輩の親御さんたちと知り合いになったり、先生やスタッ フの皆さんと色々な話しする機会が持てるので、得るものが多いからだと思います。

活動内容は、毎年、学校と相談しながら、講師をお招きして講演会を行ったり、学校のイベント支援として、ハロウィンの 賞品やカナダデ―の差入れなどを提供しています。クリスマスフィエスタにも、バザーやカフェ、ゲームなどのコーナーを担当しています。また、独自の活動としてサマーフェスティバルを主催しています。2014年度には、図書室の大改装を行いました。そして、今後も運動用具の拡充、校外学習への貢献などに関わっていきたいと考えております。

コロンビアインターナショナルスクールの生徒の保護者は皆様、PTSAのメンバーです。PTSA役員は、皆様の代表として活動させていただいているにすぎません。何か良いアイディア、また、改善点などございましたら、なんでもけっこうです。ぜひ、お聞かせください。一緒に実現、または改善していきましょう。

月に一回、だいたいその月の第1土曜日に役員会を開催しております。どうかお時間がございましたら、気軽にのぞいてみてください。一緒に子どもたちのために楽しく活動しましょう。もちろん、お電話やメールでも、いつでもご連絡ください。お待ちしています!
