ESPA AGM 2017 Invitation

On behalf of the English School Parents’ Association (ESPA) we would like to wish all Students, Parents and Guardians a successful and productive academic year and invite you to attend ESPA’s
2017 AGM that will take place on Monday 30th October 2017, 18:30  at the English School Hall.
ESPA’s goal is to represent and pursue, the view of all Parents and coordinate with the School in identifying and addressing any issues of Parents’ concern, whether of individual or of collective nature. ESPA further works with the School to organise and / or assist in events that further promote the objectives of the School to provide a wider education to its students, further cultivating the ethos that the English School represents. At the same time ESPA quietly works for positive changes in curriculum, teaching methods, discipline, uniform, school infrastructure and other issues of concern of our members and the school. It supports the School’s Clubs and other activities within and outside the School, including travel subsidies for students representing our School abroad at international events and competitions.
To achieve  its objectives, ESPA cooperates, via an  open  line of  communication, with  all other stakeholders of the School community; the Board of Management, the Headmaster and Staff, Parents, Students and the English School Old Boys and Girls Association (ESOBGA), on a regular basis, to share views and ideas on various issues, for the benefit of the School and the Students.
ESPA focuses its efforts in four areas:
1.  Education
2.  Infrastructure and Facilities
3.  Pastoral and Students Support
4.  Events and Support to Clubs and School Activities
Our effort is to pursue the Parents’ views whilst the School addresses issues in the above areas.
The English School is an exceptional springboard for students that aspire to maximise their potential and enter the top universities worldwide. It prepares students educationally to be competitive at the highest level as well as to be able to quickly integrate in multicultural international environments. ESPA’s effort is to support the School to continually develop and improve with the view to offer the best of service to its Students.
An ongoing participation of parents and guardians in ESPA is vital for a healthy school community. It helps to strengthen bonds amongst stakeholders, contribute to the school as a whole and nurture fine adults in the process.
We look forward in seeing you all at the AGM and invite you to join us in our efforts.
