PTA

Beacon Hill School PTA promotes close co-operation and contact between parents and the school. 

The main task of the PTA is to raise funds to benefit all students at our school. A variety of events are held each year including the popular annual International Food Fair and Christmas Carol Concert. All parents are encouraged to join in our activities as EVERY child benefits from PTA activities and thus far we have raised well over $700,000! Recent projects undertaken by the PTA have included the resurfacing of the school playground and in the past, the PTA has also been responsible for supplying reading books for our school library. As always funds raised will be used to benefit the students.  Our next project will include redeveloping the school playground.

Under the ESF ordinance, it is compulsory for all parents to join the PTA. All parents are encouraged to join in our activities as every child benefits from PTA activities and thus far we have raised well over $700,000! As always these funds will be used to benefit the students.  

The PTA also nominates one parent representative, another parent member is voted in from the community to sit on the School Council.  The School Council is the Governing Body of the school. 

Our PTA Coordinator Ms Janley Chu is available on 2337 8932 should you have any queries. Alternatively, the PTA can be contacted via the school or via email at pta@bhs.edu.hk

 

School Uniform

BHS is phasing in a new school uniform. The uniform sales site has been launched and all parents can access this by clicking into this link: www.schooluniform.hk 

  • Year 1 students  will purchase the NEW school uniform, PE kit and bag.  The old purple uniform is not an option. 
  • Year 2-6 students (existing and new) – Your child has the option of wearing either uniform for the next two academic years (2020-21 & 2021-22).   ALL students will be in the NEW school uniform by August 2022
  • ALL students will merge into the new PE kit when they need to purchase new items as we have no old PE stock left. 
  • ALL students will need to be wearing the new PE kit by August 2021 – so families have one year to merge to the new PE kit.

The PTA will no longer be selling uniforms and all orders for both old and new school uniforms will be purchased through the ‘school uniform’ website above. The new uniform will be delivered or collected in store whilst the old uniform will be picked up from school.    

 

New Uniform 
  • When entering the website, simply click on the Beacon Hill School logo and then you can navigate at ease through the site.  You will see the full range of uniform, PE kit and the school bag which are essential items for all Year 1 students.  
  • There will also be long sleeve shirts / blouses and these will be added as soon as available.  
  • The school will not have designated summer and winter uniform or transition dates. This will be left to the parents discretion.
  • The new uniform is to be worn with the shirt left outside (not tucked in).  Black school shoes and white ankle socks are to be worn to complement the design.
  • PE kit is to be worn on days with PE in the timetable.  White trainers are no longer compulsory to wear with PE kits, students must wear proper sports shoes suitable for running and vigorous activity.
  • Hats must be worn in uncovered areas.  There are no hats yet with the new uniform supplier however we still have a number of caps available in the old uniform section.  Until we come up with a new hat option students are free to wear a simple, non branded hat in a subtle colour, preferably navy.
  • You can opt for SF Express home delivery or in store collection.  Delivery timeframes are currently longer due to Covid-19 and are approx. 7-10 working days. This timeframe currently applies for items indicated as ‘in stock’ and ‘available for preorder’.  For safety reasons it is highly recommended to choose the home delivery option. 
  • Current restrictions also mean all in-store services with the exception of online order pick up are temporarily unavailable.  The paused services include in-store Sales Service, Sizing & Fitting and in-store Return & Exchange.  Unfortunately this means fittings cannot proceed. However very detailed sizing charts are provided with each item.  The suppliers are also offering parents free shipping for returns/exchanges (one time only) so that parents can exchange easily if they have made an error with sizing. 
  • Details of the supplier’s current services, including provision for returns/exchanges, can be found on their ‘response to COVID-19’ page, which will be updated regularly. https://www.schooluniform.hk/pages/latest-covid-19-updates

 

Old Uniform 

The existing uniform is also purchased through the school uniform website.  If you scroll further down these are listed under ‘Sale & Clearance Items’.  All items have been further discounted and great savings are to be had.  All sale items purchased will be collected directly from school.  Under normal circumstances they will be delivered to your child’s classroom.  As campus is still off limits collection cannot be currently made but we will arrange a pick up window as soon as return to campus dates are announced.

 

As stated above:

  • PE kit is to be worn on days with PE in the timetable.  White trainers are no longer compulsory to wear with PE kits, students must wear proper sports shoes suitable for running and vigorous activity.
  • Hats must be worn in uncovered areas. We still have a number of caps available in the old uniform section.  Until we come up with a new hat option students are free to wear a simple, non branded hat in a subtle colour, preferably navy.
  • School issue backpacks are compulsory. These can be either the existing red/white BHS backpack or the navy ESF backpack.

 

Lunch Order

The PTA oversees the provision of hot school lunches.  Currently we have contracted Delicious Chef King Catering Ltd (DCK) as the hot lunch provider.  Lunches are ordered online and payment is made through PPS.  Each child has been given their own unique login ID and password which they must use for ordering.  If you are a new student or have misplaced this you can contact the PTA or DCK directly on 2464 1838.  To sign in please click on the link below, navigate to the “Order Page” on the top right hand corner and enter your login details.  You will be asked to choose a meal from 4 options for each day of that particular month.  Menus come out usually mid month and orders must be made within the ordering timeframe.  Our newsletter will inform you when ordering menus come out and the deadline for orders to be placed.  If you wish to order please look out for this as late orders will not be accepted.

 

Please note the following requirements from DCK:

Absence cancellations (not applicable during Inclement Weather Cancellations)

  • Lunch cancellations can only be made through email and must be sent out before 8:30am in the day required. Please email mealbox@deliciousck.com stating school name, student name, class and cancellation date(s)
  • No refunds / credits will be made for meals cancelled after 8:30am

 

Inclement Weather Cancellations

  • No refund (ie. EDB announcement, black rainstorm or no.8 typhoon signal)
  • If school wishes to cancel partial meal orders due to special activities, school shall provide written notice at least 3 working days in advance
