Parents & Teachers Association
Rome International School’s families and staff are members of the Parent & Teacher Association (PTA) and receive regular news and information on initiatives and upcoming events. The PTA is widely engaged in raising funds, organising charity partners, planning events, helping new families integrate and generally building the sense of community at RIS.
The co-chairs of the PTA for the 2016/17 academic year are Ms Monica Ortolani and Ms Carlotta Menarini. Since 2015/16, the school and the PTA have been collaborating on an important new project, “Sharing our vision: education for all”.
Fundraising is important to our community and we support a number of national and international initiatives. Meetings are held regularly and dedicated committees are established throughout the year. Students are often directly involved and participate in all PTA projects.
Examples of PTA initiatives include the Rome IB Schools for Hunger Run, the Operation Smile Olympics and Rome Marathon.
