St. Mary’s Association

Current Events

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year

Welcome to all new families, and welcome back to all returning families! I hope you had a restful summer and are ready for a new exciting year at St. Mary’s.

The St. Mary’s Association (SMA) is the school’s parent association, and the main purpose of the SMA is to promote community spirit and raise funds for programs that enrich our sons’ education. This is accomplished through volunteer participation. We invite and encourage your participation in the activities organized and coordinated by the SMA board members.

Please contact us at sma@smis.ac.jp for more information. We look forward to hearing from you.

 

What is SMA?

The SMA is an organization consisting of all parents of boys attending St. Mary’s International School. The SMA Board consists of the current Headmaster in an advisory role and volunteer parents of boys in RP through Grade 12.

The SMA Board is responsible for coordinating various fundraising events which enhance and enrich the boys’ educational and extracurricular activities. The main fundraising events include Bingo, International Ball, Carnival and Raffle.

The SMA also coordinates activities, meetings and social functions to create opportunities for St. Mary’s parents to become better acquainted with one another. Our aim is to build a strong community with shared interest in creating a positive and enriching environment for all members of the St. Mary’s family.

All activities of the SMA are carried out on a volunteer basis. Just one or two hours of your time will make a valuable contribution to the efforts of the SMA to make the school a better place for our boys.

Please contact us at sma@smis.ac.jp if you have questions or would like more information on volunteer opportunities. We look forward to hearing from you.
