  1. PTC-4:

Dear Parents/Guardians,

The last PTC of the year is scheduled for Saturday, November 11, 2017 from 9am to 12:30 pm. Like always everyone is encouraged to attend but if you feel there are no issues of pressing concern then participation is not necessary. We look forward however to welcome those parents who will be attending the PTC.

Kindly note the following points:

  • The student should be along for the PTC, preferably in school uniform. ID card must be brought along.
  • Avoid the use of regional language and mobile phone.
  • Parents/Guardians are requested to take their “turn number slip” by showing the student I.D. card to the respective Coordinators.
  • Meetings shall be held on first come first serve basis.
  • If you wish to discuss matters in detail, we request that you either attend the PTC early or that you request to meet with the teacher on a different day for longer conversation. Otherwise the meeting should be brief and specific.
  • The student should leave the meeting room when sensitive issues are discussed.
  • Kindly directly visit the relevant campus.

Thank you for your cooperation in this regard.
