"Welcome from the Parents Association of the Bishkek International School.  We're so pleased that you are considering joining the BIS community.  One of the best things about this school is that is so much more than a school.  BIS is a family, built of our fantastic staff, international and local families, and of course the wonderful kids.  It is wonderful to be involved in helping this unique school develop.  

Every parent and guardian of children at BIS is a member of the parents association.  Our regular meetings and events are run by parents working together in the Parents Association Management Committee.  We work closely with the school management and staff, and parents to continue the ongoing positive development of the school.  We particularly work towards welcoming new families to the school, regular social and fundraising events and providing feedback and support to the school.  

Whether you are a parent considering education at BIS, a potential student or staff member you won't regret joining our community.  I hope we see you soon.  

Liz Dugdell


Parents Association Management Committee"

The Parents Association plays a substantive role in the community life of the school. All parents and/or guardians of students in ESCA are included in the Parents Association as part of their agreement when enrolling their child in the school. The Parents Association represents the interests of parents by inter-alia:

(i)  Electing three members of the Governing Board;

(ii)  Meeting with the Management Board to discuss school issues and to nominate representatives for school working groups;

(iii)  Appointing Class Representatives to help parents communicate with each other and the school;

(iv) Organizing social events around the school and providing volunteers to help with school activities.

The Parents Association elects a Parents Association Management Committee (PAMC) to organise its affairs. Regulations of the Parents Association are available to download from the school website.
