A warm welcome is waiting for anybody who would like to come along and join us in our planning and organising of future events. We welcome new members who can cast a fresh pair of eyes and ears and hopefully contribute different fundraising ideas.
The PTA provides ‘the cherry on top of the icing on the cake’ for the school; those things which would not otherwise be provided. Of course, this would not be possible without the support of parents and school members of staff.
