GIIS director just announced the new formation of a PSG group. Now would be the time to call for the right process of election by calling a parents-meeting on GIIS grounds on a day, such as Sunday or Saturday afternoon where all parents who want to be involved can be present. PSG or PTA, the representatives for the parents, such as the president should be elected by PARENTS in a transparent process not the management. I hope this time this will be the case. Any comments?

Management of GIIS just announced the new process of forming a PSG. Now would be the time to call for a general election eg. on a Sat./or Sun.afternoon, so all parents who wish to get involved can do so, on GIIS grounds to allow PARENTS to choose their representative in a transparent manner. Any comments?

PSG's resignation sent to the school

Dear Mrs Sharma & Manoj,

The PSG members have been very enthusiastic in their roles, to help bring the GIIS-community together.

The members themselves came in early every morning for 2 months to organise the drop-off. The system was successfully implemented.
Helped school organise parent volunteers for K1 and K2
Source Hindi and Tamil worksheets for beginners to be given to parents
Organise GPM class-wise. Conduct these meetings, which also meant to be at the receiving end from disgruntled parents.
Minute every meeting, forward the same to school in an organised fashion. This activity took PSG two months to conceptualise, put into action and deliver to school.
There are issues that PSG has been bringing to school's notice right from day one that it came into existence;

ID cards
School transport (bus permits validity??)
Bridging classes for students joining from other syllabus, which was promised to parents
Increasing class strength
Canteen size etc.
There has been no response at all on these issues. Promises have been made by Manoj ( which we conveyed to the parents),but not kept.

Parents are rightfully getting annoyed with PSG and feel no confidence in our representation. Hence all the members unanimously do not feel confident to carry on in this role/responsibility and are forced to resign.
