Subject: LETTER FROM THE ACTING SUPERINTENDENT - CALL FOR A SPECIAL MEETING

11 September 2006

Dear ISM Member,

As you may be aware, we currently do not have a Board of Trustees. While classes at International School Manila have resumed, this situation does not allow the School to function as it should. The Administration, parents, faculty and staff consider the constitution of a new Board of Trustees as a matter of extreme urgency and necessity. Filling this vacancy is a task that now falls upon the community of ISM associate and sustaining members.

A special meeting of the members has been called on the basis of a letter, supported by the requisite number of signatures, calling for the removal of the Board of Trustees and/or the election of a new Board of Trustees. I have thus instructed the ISM Corporate Secretary to issue the enclosed Notice and Agenda for a special meeting of members which will be held at the ISM Fine Arts Theatre on Monday, 18 September 2006 at 6:00 P.M. KPMG has been engaged to validate proxies and to provide all necessary support services at this special meeting. We urge you to attend.

The sustaining members of ISM have sent a list of candidates to stand for election at this meeting. We enclose the list we have received together with the letter outlining the proposals of the sustaining members. Among their proposals is for their candidates, if elected, to constitute an interim board that would serve only until the May 2007 elections. This list is shared for your information and is neither an endorsement nor a nomination by ISM of these candidates. A full list of candidates received by ISM will be released to all members upon the close of the nomination period at 4:00 P.M. on Friday, 15 September 2006.

Once again, I thank you all for your patience and understanding as a result of the recent challenges. Regaining a sense of normality and the opportunity to move forward is essential for the students and the wider community and I believe this to be a step in the right direction.

Sincerely,

Stephen Dare
Acting Superintendent
