Join Parent Staff Community | psc.representatives@gisthailand.org
Do you enjoy planning small events and would like to use these skills to bless the GIS community?

The Parent Staff Community (PSC) of Grace International School exists to foster healthy communication between parents and staff, facilitate community amongst GIS families, and to encourage staff and show gratitude for all they do.

In an effort to accomplish this, the PSC is excited to hear from anyone who would like to be on a team that is energized to help with 1-2 small events per year.

Please contact through the PSC through this email: psc.representatives@gisthailand.org


Motorcycle Traffic Flow | info@gisthailand.org
Our operations and facilities teams are in the process of changing the direction motorcycles leave campus/after school. Beginning immediately, motorcycles will follow the U-shaped road with the rest of the traffic, pass the guardhouse, and exit close to the Songthaew parking lot.

To those who ride a motorcycle: please make sure to exit the motorcycle lot following the U-shaped road, instead of going out the same way you enter the motorcycle lot. Also, please help encourage others to do the same.

Thank you for helping us improve safety and avoid the chance of collisions.
