For Parents

A warm welcome to all LISF parents, both current and prospective.

Our vision to become an international education leader stems from the fact that we treat every section of society as our very own family members.

For staff members, we have a separate council; for students, the student council, and likewise, for parents, we have created committees that guide, mentor and hear out their opinions in matters of their child’s interest.


Parent Advisory Committee

Defined as the ‘Parent Voice’, the Parent Advisory Committee aims to resolve matters concerning the interests and well-being of our children.The PAC includes volunteer parents and changes every year.

The aims and objectives of PAC are:

  • To work hand in hand with parents and the community
  • To provide students with an adequate educational environment
  • Curate a safe, robust, modern school environment
  • Pay heed to individual student’s educational, moral, social, and social conduct needs
  • Offer the most advanced programs alongside proper staff professional development
  • Ensure sound implementation of programs
  • Coordinate with parents to develop specialized tasks aimed at improving the students’ experience at school

Parent’s Meeting

  • Held twice a year, the Parent’s Meeting is a formal meeting that gives parents an opportunity to meet with teachers.
  • The meeting is conducted individually, where issues are discussed, resolved and implemented. Teachers walk parents through their child’s achievements, potential and behavior. Likewise, parents are requested to put forward any inconvenience faced by them or their children.
  • Parents are requested to contact the school receptionist to book an appointment.

Parents' Council

“What a parent does at home has the greatest impact.”

We are committed to working with parents as partners for their child’s education and engaging with them in many ways. We have therefore created a Parents Council as a means by which we can do this. The PCC is defined as the Parents’ Voice in matters concerning the interests and wellbeing of our children.

The council includes volunteer parents and LISF staff. The aims and objectives of the PCC are to support school-level decision-making and encourage the involvement of other parents through school community activities, voluntary work, and parents’ open evenings. LISF is grateful that parents are willing to donate their time and talents in this way.

Parents Council Committee:

  • Fawzia AlKamali
  • Khawla Saif Al Jaberi
  • Hamda Al Dhaheri
  • Huda Abdul Majeed
  • Ruwaida Abu Gbara
