2014-15 PTO Open Meeting Scheduled

posted Aug 28, 2014, 8:33 AM by   [ updated Aug 28, 2014, 8:36 AM ]

Dear Community, 

I Would like to invite you to attend the Open PTO Meeting on Wednesday September 17th at 6.30pm in the ISR Performing Arts room.  

I would also like to share some news with you -   Alisen Zyweck has agreed to takeover the PTO President position with effect from until the end of the school year.  Alisen will be a perfect match as she has been involved in most of the PTO events this last school year, therefore has a good understanding of how the Rumbai PTO runs.  At the last PTO Meeting there was no interest from the Community in taking over this position.  At the moment, Alisen will be working with me to enable a full handover.   Elections will then take place as normal in May.  

Should you have questions, regarding the PTO, please do not hesitate to contact me.  

Many thanks 

Sandy Hunt

On Wednesday April 16th at 6:30 in the Performing Arts room we will host a joint School Board / PTO meeting to close out the school year. We hope to have representation from every family.

The Open Board and PTO meetings are an opportunity for you as parents to have input into the school life of your child.

Commuity Meeting ~ January 16th

posted Jan 11, 2014, 9:03 PM by   [ updated Jan 11, 2014, 9:04 PM ]

We would like to invite you to a Community Meeting on January 16th at 6:30 in the ISR Performing Arts Room. The goal of this meeting is to discuss and approve the management and distribution of monies raised for the Community Service Fund.

Previously fundraising has been facilitated by the teachers and students in order to support local charities and help those in need. This was then incorporated into the Community Thanksgiving Dinner to reduce the number events on the calendar at that time of year. At present Mrs. Thiessen approves all requests. In order to formalize a process we would like a committee to be set up to approve and manage the fund. A large portion of this money has in the past gone to help the Insan Permata Orphanage and the Green Dignity Program. Other money have been used to help local staff on camp with any issues they may have. These requests are not always approved and when approved the money is often given as a loan, depending on the circumstances.

Below we have listed proposed committee members and regulations. During our community meeting we will discuss all three areas listed below, take suggestions and vote on a final decision.

Committee Members:

ISR School Director
PTO President
School Board Member (Chevron Employee Spouse) A member of the community


The approval can be given by email, telephone or in person.
At least 3 people must approve a request in order for it to be funded. The approval of the request must be signed by those who approve it.

All requests will be responded to within three days.

Guidelines for Approval of Funding:

If you would like to be involved on this Committee, please let me know. If there are a number of people interested in taking part, we will do a ballot vote camp wide. This community member on the committee does not have to have a child attending the ISR school.

We would like to encourage all of the community to attend this meeting. There will be a sweet treat and tea and coffee provided.
Many Thanks
Sandy Hunt and Lory Thiessen 

Message from In-Coming PTO President

On behalf of the PTO I would like to thank Sam Lavery for all her hard work and dedication as PTO President Sam has been there with every PTO project to support the committees in charge of every event. We will all miss Sam very much. We wish the Laverys all the very best in the future.

Thank you Suzie Nileshwar and Joumana Debais for taking on the leadership of the Christmas Party Committee. Special thanks to Ali Zyweck for organizing the Santa photo session, and to Lory Thiessen for taking the great photos. Finally, thanks to everyone who gave a helping hand in planning, organising, and preparing the event, as well as the clean up.

Special Thanks to Santa also for taking the time out of his busy schedule to come all the way from the North Pole. Your dedication and hard work proved a great success as the kids (and adults, I think) had a great time.

PTO Events Committee Meets

posted Aug 23, 2013, 7:53 AM by   [ updated Sep 3, 2013, 3:17 AM by ]

The PTO events committee held their first meeting of the school year on Tuesday, August 20th, to discuss the overall plan for this year and the up coming events. We had a good turn out with most people being able to attend and we look forward to welcoming some of our newest members of the community at our next meeting. All events are scheduled in the calendar for the year with event co-ordinators already assigned. It's only our second week back at school and planning is already well underway for our first two events, Jungle Jeeping and Halloween, thanks to Jo Chan, Laura Neal and Joanie Sullivan. They are super organised and gave us an insight into what we can expect for both events, we will have more details to follow in the coming weeks.

These events are an important part of our community and its good to know that we have such an enthusiastic team of people who are willing to make sure our kids have a fun and exciting time.

A special thanks goes to Laura for hosting the meeting at her home.
