Our PTA held its 35th Annual General Meeting on the 8th of April 2016 at the all familiar SMPS Music Room. A yearly affair, the AGM allows PTA members and parents in-attendance to mingle with teachers, strengthening the bond between us.
PTA President Sharifah Chong welcomed all attendees to this year’s AGM, which was to become a bittersweet affair : bidding farewell to past Presidents of the PTA and welcoming fresh faced committee members to continue the legacy. Ms Pang delivered her opening speech, highlighting the spirit behind the PTA. She also thanked previous committee members for their unrelenting dedication and effort toward the successful activities organized for the SMPS family in the past year.
Sharifah summarized all the activities which the PTA organized in 2015 : from the various recess time activities, to the very successful Children’s Day and Green Dot Day events. This was followed by the Treasurer’s report for 2015. This year, we thanked the wonderful Jesamin Koh and Pamela Kwan, who have contributed their time and effort toward the PTA and SMPA over the years. Their examples will continue to inspire the PTA to serve with passion.
The meeting ended with the introduction of the new committee members, some of whom are familiar faces, having served the PTA for years, and several new committee members who gave a brief introduction of themselves during the meeting.
After the conclusion of the AGM, new committee members met briefly with Ms Pang to elect the main Office Bearers.
The new team, led by the President of the PTA of 2016, Ada Tsang, look forward to a great year ahead !
