Improving School Communications

One of the activities of the Marketing & Development Sub-Committee will be to improve communication within the School and our different constituents, including students, prospective students, parents, alumni, and the large community of which we are a part.

Email accounts for the Foundation Board and the Committees to enable parents to forward questions or requests for information directly have been established.  Once received, these emails will be directed to the appropriate people for consideration.  The addresses are:

Foundation Board  board@patana.ac.th

Steering Committee  steeringcom@patana.ac.th

Finance Sub-Committee  fincom@patana.ac.th

Human Resources Sub-Committee  hrcom@patana.ac.th

Buildings & Grounds Sub-Committee  bgcom@patana.ac.th

Marketing & Development Sub-Committee  mdcom@patana.ac.th

We would encourage all parents to make use of this method of communication. Of course, if you see one of the Foundation Board Members or Committee Members at School you should feel free to approach them and ask your questions.
 
The Foundation Board will also ensure that some Foundation Board Members attend at least one PTG meeting in every Term, as well as provide other appropriate opportunities, for the Parents to meet with the Foundation Board.

Access to information regarding the operations of the School

A considerable amount of information is available for parents. Such information includes extracts from the Minutes of the Foundation Board Meetings for viewing in the Library. Information about the history of the school, the Board and its committees, selected letters from the Board and some newsletters will be gathered and added to the Library. We will also maintain copies for viewing at the Office of the Foundation Board.

Work is also being carried out to increase availability of information on the schools website.
