Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)


The PTO is a committee made of volunteers (parents, teachers and students) that supports the Strothoff International School through fundraising activities and fosters a community spirit through family events.

Over the years, we have raised money to help the school in numerous ways. We have regular events throughout the school year. These give children, parents and teachers alike, the chance to have some fun, make new connections and get to know one another better. We are always looking for new fundraising ideas and opportunities, but we usually raise money through the following events and initiatives:

  • Back to School BBQ (whole family event at the beginning of the school year)
  • Halloween Party (PYP event)
  • Winter Market (whole family event)
  • Teacher Appreciation Week
  • Summer Fair (whole family event)
  • International Book Week, sports events, sleepovers with buffets
  • Refreshments/bakery sale at the music concerts
  • Book Club
  • Happy Hour

The PTO works closely with the school’s leadership team and all the staff to ensure that all money raised is used in the most effective way.

The PTO aims to use the funds raised to provide support and to improve the daily experience of school life for children and their families, including up-grading the schools’ facilities, new outdoor and indoor equipment.

Over the years we have contributed towards/purchased:

  • Bean bags
  • Bench for outside
  • Playground equipment (scooters and tricycles)
  • Movable grandstand for music presentations
