Latest PTA News
The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is run by parents and an integral part of our school.
The PTA works with the school through:
- fundraising for much needed purchase of IT equipment, classroom furniture, library books, playground equipment, and other important items.
- providing a link between parents and school management.
- encouraging a sense of school community through the organisation of many community events each year.
- supporting the school through co-ordinating activities that free teachers up to focus on teaching, like Road Patrols, Walking Buses, washing tea towels etc.
The PTA holds a meeting on the first Monday of each month at 7.00pm in the Staff Room. All parents are warmly invited to attend these meetings and/or help provide parent support in many of the PTA’s activities throughout the year. A member of the school management team is always present at the meetings and presents a report of the monthly events happening in the school.
