GENERAL

JOIN US! : Parent Staff Community | psc.representatives@gisthailand.org 
Do you like to be involved in events but do not have time to be involved in them all?!  That’s OK!  We are looking for Event Champions to lead one event per year in partnership with the PSC team and other volunteers.  Starting Fall 2022

Are you a good communicator and like to support from behind the scenes?  The PSC team is in need of a secretary to take notes at the meetings and help with communications for the group.  Our meetings occur only once per month.

ELEMENTARY

March’s Annual Book Character Parade | elementary.office@gisthailand.org
All elementary students and staff are encouraged to dress up like a book character on March 31.  Details regarding the parade will be announced later.  If your child chooses not to participate that day, they will be expected to dress in the normal GIS school uniform but they will still be allowed to walk in the parade with the rest of the students. 

SECONDARY

Remind your child(ren) in Secondary to fill out the Self-Assessment Survey (SAS) out every  weekend. It is due by 9pm on Sunday.

SPIRITUAL LIFE

Community Night on Faith and Sexuality | spirituallife@gisthailand.org
On March 23rd we will be hosting a community night to have a conversation around faith and sexuality. The purpose of this event is to help inform parents and the community about upcoming Secondary assemblies (Mar 28 and 29th) on the subject. We will be meeting at The Well in World Club from 7:00-8:30pm. We will be sending out a longer email in the coming days with further details about our Assembly days and our Community Night.
