The PTFA is an Association of Parents, Teachers and Friends of Dyatmika whose objective is to facilitate the development and further improvement of the school by using the available resources of parents, teachers, friends and the community, in keeping with the vision and mission of Dyatmika. All parents are automatically members of this association.
An important function of the PTFA is to maintain good and close communication between parents, teachers, students and the community. This is accomplished by providing a forum for constructive ideas and feedback to flow between the school administration and the parents. We encourage parents to take an active role in Dyatmika by joining meetings or supporting the work of PTFA committees.
Dyatmika PTFA is all about supporting our children on their educational journey at Dyatmika, by building strong working relationships among Parents, Teachers & Friends.
PTFA Executive Committee
The PTFA is led by an Executive Committee consisting of a Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and two Secretaries, one providing Indonesian and the other English language communication. Meetings and social events are organised by this committee with the help of PTFA members. These are elected positions, with nominations and voting taking place early in Term 1. Each Class is represented by 1 PTFA Class Representative facilitate communication between parents and school leader/teachers.
PTFA Fundraising Committees
Parent fundraising committees play an important role by initiating and organising events that raise money for the school. Money raised by parents has been used for many different things that support better education of the students such as specialised equipment for the Art programme or Sports programme. The camaraderie of meeting new parents and friends is one of the most enjoyable aspects of joining one of these committees which contribute so much to the quality of education at Dyatmika.
