Welcome to Kennedy School PTA Ltd!
All families at Kennedy are members of our PTA and the school community. The PTA is an integral part of life at Kennedy School, and is committed to working in close partnership with parents and the school.
To promote close co-operation between parents and teachers for the general welfare of the pupils;
To provide opportunities for discussion on general education matters;
To provide or assist in providing educational aids, materials and extra-curricular activities;
To improve the educational environment for the benefit of pupils;
The organisation of non-profit making bus services to convey pupils within the School’s catchment area to and from school;
To receive donations and otherwise raise funds for the conduct of the Association and its work;
To carry out such other activities as the members of the Association may decide in furtherance of the Association’s charitable aim.
In accordance with the ESF Ordinance, it is compulsory for all parents to be members of the PTA of their child’s school. Fees are due at the start of the academic year. We hope that all of our parents will join us in working to support the school for the benefit of all our students.
About the Committee:
The PTA Committee is elected annually at our AGM. We look for committed parents who wish to take a lead in our activities. The PTA Committee is made up of:
12 parents, 3 teachers and the School Principal
All Kennedy School students benefit from the PTA’s activities, and your participation is vital to the ongoing enhancement of your child’s education. We look forward to, and appreciate, your continued support. All contributions to the PTA are most welcome and parents can do this in different ways. Some give their time freely, others make monetary donations, some donate raffle prizes while others help out as and when they can. (When help is needed for specific events this will be noted in the weekly newsletter). All are very important and benefit the students of Kennedy School.
What do we do?
Some of the PTA activities with Kennedy School include:
School buses: the PTA runs a non-fund raising school bus service. We endeavour to serve the school catchment area where viable.
Uniform: the PTA maintains a uniform shop on the school premises which is open daily.
Communication: a regular newsletter is sent to all families by e-mail
Fund-raising: Throughout the school year a number of social events are held, with the joint aim of raising funds for the school and fostering a strong sense of school community, including the Halloween BBQ, Christmas Carol Evening, Raffle, Nature Trail, Art Exhibition and Auction…
Donations to school: our donations are targeted to provide items identified by the teaching staff which are not covered by the curriculum which they feel would be beneficial for the students.
Representation: on the School Council and the Committee of Parents
School Directory and Calendar: a complimentary copy of the student directory and school calendar is issued to all families
Personal Information Collection Statement: Please note that all information collected by the PTA is done so in accordance with the Personal Information Collection Statement.
PTA Office Manager: Mrs. Emily Fu Temple

The PTA runs a bus service for students serving the catchment area (where viable) of Kennedy School. This is a non-fund raising service run for the benefit of the bus users.
Buses are fitted with seat belts for the children’s safety, and have a Bus Mother who maintains an accurate register, and looks after the children on the bus.
Bus Routes and Fares
Please note that we cannot offer a door-to-door service for the buses but where possible, taking into consideration safety, efficiency and sufficient number of students, we will try to accommodate your request.
Bus fees are payable in advance. The level of fees depends on whether a stop is termed ‘short route’ or ‘long route’. You can choose to pay by term, or for the whole year.
All students traveling on the school buses (and their parents) should be aware of, and follow, the bus regulations. Please read them with your child.
See ‘Inclement Weather Procedures’. This gives clear advice on what happens, and what to do, in the event of school closure whilst in session due to an upgrading of the typhoon signal. Advice is also given on the procedures in place for amber / red and black rainstorm warnings.
