The PTA hosts a variety of events:
Held every September, the welcome back picnic is a good way to meet new parents and students who are joining VIS for first time as well as get re-acquainted with old friends after being away for the long summer break.
Held by grade level, the coffee mornings are a great way to meet parents in your child's class, discuss classroom topics, and arrange after school play-dates. For the Primary grades, the coffee mornings are scheduled for the first two weeks of school. Check the calendar for more details.
Every Spring, the PTA holds a fabulous Bingo family afternoon where traditional bingo is played and various prizes are won. It is a fun event for young and old!
VIS Looks to Africa
The third annual event (held in April 2016) will bring families together to celebrate and appreciate different international cultures through food, art, music and dance. With 22 African countries represented and over 100 African students, these families will show the best Africa has to offer! Conversations are underway for next year's event.
The largest fundraisers for the PTA are the bazaars. A variety of international foods stalls, flea markets, books sales and children's activities are available.
