The aim of the PTA is to bring the school community together via informal events, helping to foster new friendships and relationships between parents, teachers, children and others associated with the school. In the process, the PTA is able to raise much needed funds for the school, without which our children would not benefit from the extra things that make a difference to their educational advancement and enjoyment of the school experience. The importance of this cannot be understated, especially in the current environment, and that is where YOU can help out.
The constitution of the PTA is to advance the education of pupils in the school in particular by:
- Developing effective relationships between the staff, parents and others associated with the school
- Engaging in activities or providing facilities or equipment which support the school and advance the education of the pupils.
