The Board plays an advisory role to the Director of FIS, and delegates the day-to-day administration and operational decisions to the Focus on Learning (FoL) Steering Committee which acts as the School Leadership Team (SLT). The Board drives the creation of a strategic framework, in collaboration with contributions from the school community.
In September 2021, the Board approved a strategic plan for 2021-2025 that focuses on four major goals: Responsible Growth, Creating a Nurturing Learning Eco-System, Developing an Effective and Efficient Management Platform, and Building Capacity. The Board has overarching responsibility to ensure that these strategic goals are being operationalised and implemented well.
The Board is responsible for adopting financial policies, approving projects, generating revenue, ensuring effective financial budgeting and planning, and reviewing the administration’s short and long-term plans”.
The Board shall be responsible for liaison with appropriate Cambodian government officials to ensure the proper management of the school and its compliance with the Rule of Law under the Cambodian Constitution. The Board also has a duty to have the school accounts audited annually by a qualified independent accounting firm.

Student Council Elections

Congratulations to the newly elected Student Council (StuCo) officers of Footprints International School’s  Toul Kork and Toul Tom Poung Campuses, for the 2022-2023 academic year. At the beginning of each academic year, students hold an assembly in which class representatives from various grades deliver speeches, hoping to win the majority vote for their desired position: President, Vice President, Secretary or Treasurer.

The purpose of StuCo is to act as a channel for student-led activities in coordination with School management and to be the voice of the student body.

StuCo aims to represent the rights of the student body at Footprints International School, promote harmonious relationships between students within and among grade levels, foster the improvement of student involvement in school activities and promote school spirit, pride, and morale, as well as encourage the development of citizenship and leadership among members of the student body.

The Footprints community is proud of our students for taking on these roles with the compassion, determination and responsibility exemplified by Footprints International School students.


Announcing our latest study pathway

Footprints is excited to announce the introduction of a new study pathway for our students: the International Programme with Khmer Language and Culture.

Currently, this pathway is on offer to G1-G5 students, and incorporates both the Cambridge International curriculum and Khmer language and culture lessons.

It provides students with our International High School diploma, which is equivalent to the National High School diploma and allows for acceptance into Cambodian universities.

The main benefits of this pathway include the opportunity for students to excel in the Cambridge curriculum while still having time to enjoy extracurricular clubs, social activities and school life.
