We are very fortunate at our school to have a PTA that is and has been such an integral part of the school community for many years. In its time the PTA has raised thousands of pounds, which have been spent on improving equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education and the facilities in school in general.
But our Parent Teacher Association is about much, much more than just fundraising. The PTA exists to provide closer links between home and school, and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents, carers and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. It is fun too - just ask any of the PTA committee members or helpers. Obviously as in any organisation, there are times when it is more ‘challenging’, but with the continued support of parents, carers and staff, our PTA has always succeeded in its efforts.
All parents, carers and members of the school community can get involved if they want to, even if they only have a small amount of time available, and all parents and carers are automatically members of the Association when their children join our school.
