Parent Support Group
The QSI Münster Parent Support Group welcomes you!
In the small-school community, the PSG plays an important role in providing the school with extra (and often very fun!) support and keeping the school and families connected.
What is the role of a PSG in QSI schools? The QSI handbook states about the PSG:
"All QSI schools will work to establish an active Parent Support Group. All QSI Parent Support Groups will use the same acronym of PSG or Parent Support Group. All parents are encouraged to become actively involved with the school through the Parent Support Group.
The goal of the Parent Support Group in QSI is to make the learning environment the best possible place for children. To achieve this goal, the Parent Support Group (PSG) will:
I. Work to enhance communication among parents as well as between parents and the school.
II. Organize educational and social events for QSI students and/or the school community.
III. Assist classroom educators in ways that allow for more efficient and productive use of instructional time.
IV. Enrich the regular classroom curriculum.
V. Promote fund-raising events in order to purchase items or services the school might not
VI. Develop events that encourage student involvement and understanding of the local community or host country."
The PSG meetings are usually held on the first Tuesday of the month at 08.30 and begin after the "Director's Chat".
Some of the ways that the PSG is typically active at QSI Münster have included:
-Family Welcome Picnic
- Winter Market (school-wide fundraiser, supported with activities and treats)
- School swag (t-shirts, hoodies, etc)
- Class "Home Parents" (a designated parent who helps with communication and planning)
- Teacher Appreciation week
