PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION

The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) welcomes and represents all BST parents in its work to foster a strong sense of engagement and belonging in both the school and the wider community.

The PTA is: 

  • Diverse: Membership includes families from all backgrounds, cultures, languages and ethnicities. 
  • Inclusive: Every parent is invited to get involved in whatever capacity they choose.
  • Engaged: Over the course of each academic year, the PTA collaborates closely with the school administration to organise monthly, termly and annual events. Every month, coffee mornings provide a casual opportunity for new and veteran parents to meet and mingle. Charity drives and fund-raisers to support causes in the local community take place every term, and on an annual basis, formal galas celebrate and support school initiatives such as the Annual Fund
  • Supportive: The PTA understands that BST families' needs extend beyond the school, and works to provide resources that will help them settle into or engage in a balanced, healthy lifestyle. These include seminars and webinars with external health and lifestyle experts, workshops on natural disaster preparedness, lectures on current events, and more. 

All PTA activities are entirely volunteer-based, led by an Executive Committee of parents who come forward based on their experience and time commitment. 

To learn more about the PTA, contact pta@bst.ac.jp.
