Parent Teacher Organisation

What we do

The Parent Teacher Association plays a vital role in Tessa International School’s community-building efforts. It is the School’s and PTO’s joint mission to build a cohesive, global-minded community and work together to make a difference in every child. We look forward to all parents in every grade volunteering their time and participating in PTO events.

PTO Meetings

The PTO, staff and Tessa parents meet on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at 6:30 pm. PTO meetings are the perfect opportunity to discuss upcoming events, issues, ideas, and work together towards a better community.

Year Book

Each year, the PTO undertake the task of creating Tessa’s year book, collecting pictures from the school year, quotes from children and creating a profile for each one of them.

During the current context of distance learning, we welcome any of your photos. Please send them to mjolain@tessais.org.

  • Serving as a source of accurate information and helping to resolve conflicts in a constructive manner
  • Encouraging parent attendance at PTO and School events
