Hello from the PTA!
The PTA is an association of parents/carers and staff that aims to further the education of the pupils through fundraising and hosting events and activities. All parents and carers are automatically members of the PTA, and everyone is welcome at our meetings and events.
The PTA currently has a Committee of 13 parents who oversee the running of the association, but meetings can be attended by anyone. We meet roughly every six weeks on Wednesday evenings in the school hall – please come and join us! Meetings are informal, start with refreshments, and are a good opportunity to get to know parents outside your own year group while doing something worthwhile for the school. Our AGM will be held in November, when a new Committee will be elected.
We organise a number of events aimed at children, parents, families and the local community – for example, a summer and Christmas fair, discos and magic shows for the pupils, adult comedy nights, and an annual family quiz night. While fundraising is obviously a key objective, we are also clear that our events exist to bring the school community together, to enable us to get to know each other better and to add to the children and their families amazing lasting memories of their time at Perry Hall.
If you have any questions about the PTA or want to get involved please look out for us at the school gates, or drop Alison, our PTA Chair, an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
