Meet the New PTA/ Le Nouveau Comité de l’APP

Posted by

There has been a great response to the appeal made at the Welcome Breakfast for parents to volunteer their time to the PTA. All of the key posts on the Committee have been filled, which is great news. Par ailleurs. quatre d’entre eux sont de nouveaux parents de La Chât et viennent d’arriver en Suisse!. Ce sera merveilleux de bénéficier de leur expérience dans d’autres APPs et mouvements de jeunesse, ainsi que de leur enthousiasme .

Our new Committee is also more diverse than previously, with a broader spread of nationalities represented.

Alors, qui sont les membres du nouveau Comité?
