ISC PA stands for the International School Carinthia Parent Association. They are a legally established non-profit entity under Austrian law.
We are parents who work on an entirely voluntary basis to support the best possible school experience for our children – and have fun doing it. We are led by the six elected members of the Parent Council.
The Parent Council is the board of the Parent Association. It consists of six members, namely the President, PC Secretary, PC treasurer, one PC PYP representative, one PC MYP representative and one PC DP representative. This council is elected by the collectivity of all parents every two years.
Next election: May 2022

Given the Covid-19 restrictions at the time, it is not possible to organize large school-wide events, so they are working primary with class representatives to discuss and support efforts to still bring a great value to all the students.
No, members should volunteer time if they want to and only in ways they enjoy.
“When someone has an “idea for the school”, he/she may contact the school directly, otherwise we’d be happy to hear him/her out and try to find a way to support the idea when possible.”
