At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is the positive involvement of parents.
– Jane D. Hull
The NIST International School Parent-Teacher Association (NIPTA) is a diverse volunteer organization with a clear mission to inspire, empower and enrich NIST’s diverse community in ways that further the vision of the school. Comprising parents from differing cultures and backgrounds, NIPTA works closely with school leaders and staff in supporting the growth and success of every child. The group thus strives to:
- Enhance parental involvement in a range of school events and opportunities
- Strengthen the relationships among parents, students, staff, leadership and the board, as well as with the broader community in which we live
- Facilitate the flow of information between the parents and NIST administration
NIPTA also actively supports the NIST community by organizing a variety of social and fundraising events and activities. It welcomes families who are new to NIST and sponsors cultural festivals, Explore Bangkok Tours, and parental networking events. NIPTA also promotes NIST Falcon sports teams, and provides assistance for musical and theatrical performances.
Through NIPTA, parents have the opportunity to play an active role in their children’s education, strengthening the relationship and helping our community thrive.
