In reference to our previous letter that was issued last week, there are some points that seem to need further clarification.
Old Vs New Campus:
El Alsson School Management (Amr/ Rogers), along with all Senior management, the whole staff and administration are moving to NEWGIZA as of September 2017. The old campus will still exist as a school, however the Alsson management will not operate or supervise it and it may be sub-leased or sold on to an alternative school.
The El Alsson website, letters and official school social media platforms are the only formal source of providing information to our parents. We encourage parents to direct all questions to us or meet us if need be, and we will do our best to reply and accommodate. We understand that parents have their informal social media channels where they share information and ask questions, however, this can sometimes cause confusion and worry to some. We urge people not to follow unofficial social media channels and believe rumors; if it is not coming from our formal communication channels, please disregard.
Parent School Association (PSA):
It is important to re-emphasise the PSA’s role. PSA members have been elected by the parent body of the school to represent different sections. The main aims of the PSA are to contribute to the development and improvement of all aspects of school life (academic, moral values, sports, culture, extracurricular activities, equipment and organization). The committee holds a monthly meeting where both the parent and school members exchange information and ideas. Parent members are also there to listen to other parents in their child’s section of the school and represent their concerns and inquiries when necessary, and also represent the school to parents and make sure they have clear and accurate information.
The PSA representatives are parent volunteers. The PSA is not a complaints forum, nor are they responsible for official school communications. All official school communication is distributed through our website, emailed letters and the official school social media. Again, we encourage parents with concerns or questions to come to the school directly.
