Introducing and connecting with the Parents' Association

BIS-NY has a welcoming, active Parents’ Association dedicated to supporting the school’s mission and fostering a vibrant, inclusive community. All parents are members of the PA and your involvement is valued and encouraged. 

Please enjoy the Welcome Letter from the Parents' Association with meeting dates and much more here in full.

After School & Enrichment

As we prepare to reopen in September we are stringently following all recommendations and requirements to ensure the wellbeing of our school community

We can confirm there will be an after school care club option for parents from Monday September 13th, until 5.30pm. This can be signed up for by contacting Sita (frontdesk@bis-ny.org) and is charged at $22 / hour.

We are still working on the best approach for clubs to strike a balance between providing these important additional opportunities for the students and continuing to operate as safely as possible to maintain in-person learning. We will update this site, and notify you via email as and when we are able to offer each item.
