At DBIS we are all blessed to be part of a diverse, enthusiastic and generous community here in Discovery Bay, making it possible for the PTSA to pursue its main aims:

  • to provide support to the school; to raise funds and provide financial assistance both within the school and for external charities
  • to create a warm and enriching environment in which our children can learn and thrive
  • to develop a team of dedicated and energetic volunteers who are able to work with parents, staff and students to provide practical help for initiatives and events

This school year has been hugely enjoyable and we have been able to organize and host a number of well-attended events. The largest of these, the International Food Fair,  once again raised an amazing amount of money which will be used to fund a variety of teacher/ student/ parent led initiatives, as well as to provide support for a number of external charities.

If you would like to get involved in any way with working with the PTSA, want to share an idea with us or have any questions about the hows, whats and whys of our organization, then please do contact us at:

We are a very friendly crew and are always happy to listen and learn.

With warmest regards from your PTSA Committee.
