Parent Teacher Organisation (PTO)

Families Learning & Growing Together

The Dalat PTO warmly welcomes all families to learn and grow together in the Dalat community. We are very blessed to be in a school that wholeheartedly encourages and supports the active participation of parents through the many avenues offered by the school and the PTO.

Parents can get involved through volunteer work, community service, and by offering their assistance and expertise in any area of learning or development towards the betterment of the school and benefit of its students’ learning.

The PTO sincerely hopes we can give a good platform to parents to get to know each other, meet with teachers and staff on a regular basis and offer opportunity for you to serve and partner with the school.

Our Objectives

  • To uphold the purpose, mission and educational philosophy of the school.
  • To support and encourage parental involvement in school’s activities and events.
  • To promote mutual understanding among parents, teachers and administrators in giving our children the greatest advantages of a multifaceted education.
  • To represent parents’ concerns to the school.
  • To promote the physical and emotional safety of our children in school.
  • To serve as a communication link and mutual support system amongst parents.
  • To encourage multicultural and ethnicity awareness within our community.

Over the years, PTO has grown from a few faithful to a sizable number, mainly providing ways for parents to get involved in school. Events and activities are sponsored by our generous PTO community and all proceeds generated go towards the PTO fund, which in turn goes back to benefit the school, students, staff and Dalat families.

Some of the major events of the PTO are Family Fun Day, Teacher Appreciation Week, Garage Sale and International Food and Fun Fair. Popcorn Mondays are a weekly labor of love while the Valentine’s Day fundraiser is also a big part of the Dalat PTO tradition.

The PTO fund recently gave towards the PE department’s ice machine, video recording equipment for the Fine Arts department, appreciation gift vouchers to all Dalat staff during Appreciation Week and one of our favorite Dalat traditions, Battle of the Books. In years past we have also given to the ES Library, Music Program, Annual Fund, Student Center, Staff Lounge and Scouts.

We are growing strong. But don’t take our word for it. Come and be part of the action.
