What does the PTA do?
We help to raise money for the little extras and luxuries for the children by holding fantastic fundraising events. The money raised has so far helped us to purchase our new improved Trim Trail in the playground, a projector, PA system, our website design, play equipment for Foundation Stage and KS1, digital cameras, a friendship bench, lunchtime play equipment for the whole school and equipment for the kitchen. Our superb events include BBQs, shopping and food evenings, our hugely popular Summer Fayre, Christmas events, raffles cake sales and parties. Take a look at some of our latest PTA events.
Who can attend meetings?
Everyone who has a link with St. Joseph’s school is welcome to the PTA meetings including parents past and present, grandparents, teachers, governors, and St. Joseph’s congregation. We welcome any support from parents who would like to get involved. Every little contribution helps even if it is just a few hours volunteering at an event, baking a cake, donating items for our stalls or coming to a PTA meeting.
When and where are the meetings?
We hold the meetings once a month in the school hall at 7pm, and if you can’t join us in the evenings we hold afternoon meetings – toddlers welcome! There is usually tea, coffee, biscuits and, if you’re lucky, a cake!
How to get involved…
Come and join us at a meeting or speak with your class rep. Any offers of help or new ideas are always welcome. Even a few hours selling tickets or serving teas is more than helpful. Your PTA needs you – remember it’s for the children. To contact the PTA please email firstname.lastname@example.org
