Friends of Bandung Independent School

The Bandung Independent School parents are involved in several aspects of the community and their children's education. FoBIS is an association of teachers, parents, and community: Friends of Bandung Independent School is not a private club and there is no membership fee to join. FoBIS is open to everyone. If you have a child enrolled at Bandung Independent School you are automatically a member. FoBIS is organised and run by volunteer parents and teachers. The main goals of FoBIS are to raise funds for Bandung Independent School and to provide social activities for the school and the greater expatriate community. The funds raised by FoBIS are used to update, improve, or expand existing facilities as well as sponsor different sporting events. In the past, funds raised by FoBIS played a big part, for example, in updating the BIS computer lab and providing new uniforms for the sporting teams. As always, FoBIS will also put great effort into providing our students with the most enjoyable activities possible. Living overseas can be hard on children. FoBIS provides invaluable social activities that enhance an expatriate child's life.

The FoBIS Committee (Boyoung Seong, Mathana  Vongphakdi and Jermaine Obayashi) holds meetings once a month and is open to every parent. Please join the next meeting and volunteer a few hours of your time for this worthwhile cause. Remember; your child will benefit from your help and expertise. If you should have any questions or concerns or just want to stop by, observe, and have a cup of coffee you are more than welcome. If your excuse for not attending is that you have younger children that do not attend school you are not alone. Bring them along, as well as a toy or two, to help keep them occupied. If English is not your first language, or you have a little trouble understanding it or following along, let one of our committee members know, and they can introduce you to one of our FoBIS language representatives. We all want the best education possible for our children, so a few hours a week or a month of your time is not a lot to ask in order to accomplish this. The more volunteers there are the less work everyone has to do. Volunteering for FoBIS is also a great way to make new friends and have fun!

Dates, meeting times, a list of the FoBIS committee members, and any other information will be sent home with students, included in the school newsletter, and can be found on posters placed around school. The FoBIS Committee wishes to thank you for your time and attention.
