Our mission as a PTA is to help build the IICS community and one of our main tools are the PTA Tours. It is probably the best and easiest way to get people together.

PTA member Alexandra managed to organize an amazing 46 tours during this school year which means that we had one or two tours every week!

It was a tour program that definitely catered to every taste and interest – sport, arts, lifestyle, culture, shopping, cooking, welfare activities, social and more. All of them unique with this a special personal touch that you would not get anywhere else.

Ultimately we even managed to raise money for donations to Bomonti Home for the Elderly and for the IICS Animal Welfare Club.
