INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL SAINT LUCIA PARENT COUNCIL (ISSLPC)

Our parent council is a committed group of parents and community members that are interested in advancing the education experience of the students of International School Saint Lucia. We recognize that it takes an entire community to raise our children, including:

  • teachers
  • staff
  • administration
  • families
  • extended families
  • Gros-Islet community members
  • citizens of St. Lucia.

We believe that getting to know each other and working together will breakdown apparent boundaries, creating an inclusive and positive group that works together to take advantage of opportunities for learning and growth. You are welcome to join us at any time and in whatever way you are able. We encourage any and all interested members of our community to join our meetings and committees. If you would like to become involved with the parent council, please contact us.

Our school relies on and benefits greatly from the commitment and dedication of our parents. Sharing ideas and collaborating on issues that help ISSL continue to grow as an outstanding school on the island is always more effective with the involvement of many of our parents.

Great schools have one thing in common…aside from the high quality of teaching and a comprehensive, challenging program, they all have parents dedicated and committed to ensuring that excellence continues at their child’s school.

Please plan to attend and help us to continue to be a great school. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Yours in education,

Dale Finch
Principal
