What does the PTFA do?
We encourage closer links between home and school
What do you need to do?
The level of commitment from committee members is individual. Some people come to the occasional meetings or help out at one activity a year; others may choose to attend every meeting, and if they have the time, become involved in many events. See a list of events for 2017 - this will be updated after the Annual Planning Meeting on the 21st February where everyone is welcome to attend and bring their fantastic ideas and energy.
The PTFA works to :
- encourage fellowship among parents, teachers, children and the community, to achieve a mutual understanding of goals and problems in educating children.
- preserve the special character of the school as a Catholic school committed to promoting Christian principles and ideals.
- ensure our children receive the best education we can give them, and
to foster the best physical, intellectual and mental health of the child.
- enable parents, teachers, and the community to formally discuss areas
- assist the school with activities where parent involvement is needed.
- support the Board of Trustees in their development, communication and
action of policies, strategies and other activities.
- assist the school with fundraising.
Meetings are held monthly, and all members of the school community are welcome to attend and participate. A good committee should reflect the community it represents. You can read the previous minutes here.
The committee is currently chaired by Cindy Borrie, with Clarion Ferdinands as treasurer and Kym Plaisted as secretary - you can find their contact details here.
The PFTA is always grateful for help, and supports all levels of involvement.
