PTA Updates

International Day Festival is here!

This Thursday the school celebrates Internationalism in numerous ways. Whether as a student enjoying our "Taste of BIS Abu Dhabi", or a parent coming to visit the cultural stalls offered by our volunteering parents while watching some fantastic Cultural Displays from students and parents alike; we can all look forward to a wonderful shared learning experience culminating in the International Day Parade! Full details have been sent home already but here is a quick recap of what is going on and where you can help us make it extra-special for the students of BIS Abu Dhabi.

We need your help in donating food from your country.

We kindly ask that children bring a plate of bite-size, finger-friendly food to share as a sample of your country's national flavour (sweet or savoury).
Trolleys will be located at the Primary entrance and at the Team Falcon entrance for parents and students to drop off their food donations.
Kindly note: If your country is not listed, see map below, we have two stalls named ‘others’ which will be labelled on the day with the food brought in from countries that have no parent volunteers to operate an individual table.

Please label all donations with the name of the country along with a list of ingredients.
Nut Free - We cannot accept or display donations that may contain nuts.
Pork Free - We cannot accept or display donations that may contain pork.
Cold, savoury food is preferable, but all dishes will be gratefully received.
Please don’t send food that requires either heating or refrigeration.

We ask you to send food in disposable containers or platters. Given the number of donations, we cannot guarantee return of any containers or platters.
Kindly Note: If not correctly labelled, your contributions will not be displayed and more importantly, not tasted and enjoyed or able to represent the taste of your Country.

Parents are welcome to come along and enjoy the International Day Festival from 12:30 until normal pick up time at 2:45. We sincerely hope you and your children enjoy the day.

February Coffee Morning will be held on Tuesday 12th February. The Second-hand Uniform shop and books will be available for sale. Come and join us for a relaxing hour (or two), bring your coffee mug to help reduce, reuse, recycle.

Wishing you a great week ahead.

Kind regards,
BIS Abu Dhabi PTA
