Parents at WISS
Families joining the WISS community for the first time have often remarked how warmly they were welcomed when their children enrolled in our school.
WISS values and encourages parental involvement, inviting parents to become an integral part of the school community. Their involvement is essential in contributing to and building a community that fosters personal and educational excellence.
Parent Community Group
The Parent Community Group (PCG) at WISS is a collection of dedicated and caring parents that come together to support the WISS Social events, Charity programmes and to coordinate and enjoy Parent social events. They cover a number of key areas and have initiated a number of projects, as below:
The PCG welcomes new and returning families at the beginning of each semester with a warm and welcoming Coffee Morning.
Working throughout the year with School Administration, the PCG devises new initiatives and ensures our fund-raising is targeted where it is needed most. They also inform the parent community of volunteer opportunities within the community and help parents to find the project best suited to them.
The PCG tries to find new ways parents and students can spend more time with each other outside of school. They coordinate events such as: The Music of the Ages themed party and the annual WISS Gala Evening fundraiser event.
The PCG created the WISS Cookbook in 2012, comprised of recipes from the WISS Community and sold the book to fundraise for the WISS Partner Charity in South Africa, KYP.
The PCG created the WISS Travel Book in 2014, comprised of travel stories from the WISS Community and sold the book to fundraise for the relief efforts for Ebola and in Nepal.
What Parents Say About WISS
I like the way WISS supports art and creativity. Kids are encouraged to develop their talent in all topics, from music to theatre, from painting to dancing, as well as all the other subjects, and they can express themselves in multiple ways.
WISS was the only school that made us realize that we had not come to a wrong city; the admission staff at WISS were extremely cordial and welcoming. A few minutes of talking over the phone made us decide to choose WISS-and then the journey began. As time passes, slowly, we forgot that we are away from India in our first ever assignment abroad. No other school than WISS would have done justice to our requirement and the criteria we were looking at in a school to build our children’s future
We had the opportunity to tour a few international schools in Shanghai but after visiting WISS, there really wasn’t any question as to which school would be the best fit for our girls. The size of the school and the welcoming community feel of WISS during our visit made the decision very easy.
