Parents, Staff and Friends Association (PSFA)
The PSFA is a voluntary association that supports the school, under guidelines set by the Principal and School Leadership. Its aim is to provide the school community with additional resources, expertise and time. There are various committees within the PSFA which include, 'Social Events', 'Volunteers' and 'Marketing', as well as individual 'Class Representatives'.
Every Star International School parent is welcome to join and give their time to any of the committees currently running. Each committee elects a Chair and Secretary and, in some circumstances, a Treasurer. Meetings tend to be held within the school and can be as frequent as once a week or as little as once every couple of months, depending on the agenda. Whilst the meetings are very relaxed, they are extremely productive and are also a great way to meet other parents and make new friends.
We are very proud of the work done e.g. the organisation of a School Open Day, regular school discos (which the children thoroughly enjoy!) and fund raising. We have also supported school events in which we celebrate special occasions such as Iftar, Diwali, Christmas, National Day and International Day.
Star Club is an after school childcare facility provided on behalf of the school by qualified staff. The club provides supervised, quality care in a safe and fun, informal play environment. Activities include arts & crafts, playdough modelling, gross motor play, role play, puzzle time, outdoor/indoor play and age appropriate DVDs. The Primary children are also encouraged to do supervised homework. The staff ratio does not exceed more than ten children to one member of staff at any given time.
