Parent Teacher Association (PTA) IES Uppsala
The PTA at Internationella Engelska Skolan in Uppsala is a non-profit organisation.
The purpose of the PTA is to support the school for the best of the students.
The PTA arranges social activities for students, parents and school personnel.
Over the years, the PTA volunteers have worked to be a powerful voice for all
children, and actively lead the effort to increase communication between the parents
and the teachers/school administration.
Some accomplishments and initiatives:
Annual Teacher Appreciation Week
- Special guest speakers (Internet safety, social media, growth mindset)
- Winter Sports Equipment/clothes sale
- New hallway benches for the students
- Safer bus waiting area
The activities are mostly funded by membership fees. To continue having a PTA at
IESU, please join by paying the membership fee of 100 SEK per family.
Please pay by Swish to 070 743 66 34 (Rosemary Rothwell) and include the name of
the student(s) and class.
The PTA meets bi-monthly during the academic year. The meetings are open to all parents of IESU students to attend. The school principal is invited, and generally attends all meetings, giving the parents an opportunity to discuss current opportunities/issues with the school administration. If you have suggestions on topics and/or like to submit questions for discussion at an upcoming meeting, please send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: Due to Covid-19, all meetings will be digital until further notice. Link to join the bi-monthly meetings is available below, and is also shared via SchoolSoft.

Joining the PTA is a good opportunity for you to meet other parents and being able
to have an influence on your child’s experience at IESU.
Some activities are one-off efforts and others last a term/year. We welcome any
involvement – Together, we make the PTA strong!
