All about the PTA
The PTA Committee are a group of parents who meet during weekday evenings to arrange fundraising events throughout the year.
As children get older and progress through the schools people move on. A big thank you to parents leaving the PTA this year, we will miss you!
We’re really pleased to welcome several new members this year but there is room for more – if you’re interested please get in touch.
We’re looking forward to another brilliant year. We promise you a bumper year of activities and events for everyone. Looking forward to seeing you!
Another way to get involved!
We would like to appoint a PTA class rep for each class in Alwyn and Courthouse to help improve the communication channels between the PTA committee and our fabulous parents and carers! The role can be as big or small as you choose but we would like your help getting feedback from parents about the PTA, ensuring everybody knows about events that are going on and generally keeping everybody in touch! If this is a role you would like to do, please let us know.
Other Ways You Can Help
Does your company offer a corporate giving scheme?
If you work for a large corporation you may be eligible for a corporate giving scheme. Matched funding schemes can lead to doubling the amount raised on a stall if an employee has volunteered for a couple of hours. Or your company may make a donation if you spend a certain number of hours volunteering in the community. Previously we have boosted our profits thanks to contributions from Mars, J&J, Telefonica, and GE Medical. Does your employer offer such a scheme? If so, do get in touch.
