2017 PTF Rep Contact List 

Thank you to all the parents & caregivers who have volunteered to be Reps for 2017 – we appreciate all the effort and time you apply to this role.

The PTF Rep Contact List is available on the IGS Portal – log in, click on the “IGS Community” tab and you will find the list under “PTF Rep Resources”.

Reps support and strengthen the IGS community by organising social events for families, liaising with parents and caregivers to assist and support PTF sponsored activities and events, and supporting teachers and staff (under the direction of the teacher and staff member, consistent with the school’s policy on “Parent Participation in School Events”).

It is important that as members of the PTF, we:

  • promote the IGS values of diversity, personal achievement, connectedness, vibrancy and authenticity;
  • build on and enhance the positive reciprocity within the IGS community;
  • respect and trust other members of the IGS community, and the roles that they undertake within the community;
  • are respectful of each other at all times.

Please note that due to privacy concerns, the PTF Rep Contact List is not included as an attachment in the IGS News.

Year 10 2017 Formal Photos Info

Dear Year 10 Families,

Thank you so much for your support of the Year 10 IGS Formal. The students all looked amazing on the night.

Just a quick update to let you know we will be in touch via email about options to purchase formal photos later this week.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday break.

Regards,

Sandy, Sharon, Deborah and Rya

 

Year 12 2017 Post Formal Photos Info

Dear Y12 2017 Families,

Congratulations! It’s all done and dusted. The IGS Daily will be on holidays from 5 December until next school year so this is a quick update to let you know that I’ll be in touch about options to purchase formal photos (either print or high resolution digital) by group email and will ask my kid that it gets posted in the Y12 FB group also. I expect that there will be a secure Dropbox site link for this and low resolution pix will be avail for free. Once Max (photographer) and I sort it out, info will be passed along.

Happy Holidays everyone!

Regards,

Suzy
