Parent Teacher Association
- The PTA offers a forum for discussion, suggestions and exchange of information for all adults in our school community. Good communication is essential for a healthy school atmosphere. The PTA is not a policy making or decision making group.
- Parents and teachers who attend the PTA AGM (Annual General Meeting) elect a committee to manage the PTA for a one year term. The committee includes a representative from the teaching staff, two from the BOM, one from the Executive Committee and two parent representatives. There is a chairperson, a secretary and a fundraiser.
- All members of our community are welcome to attend once-monthly meetings. At these meetings, a report is given from the Executive Committee, the Board of Management, the Ethos group and the teaching staff. The floor is then open to raise any issue of concern. Issues raised have included: traffic problems; grounds maintenance; healthy eating policy enforcement.
- If a parent is unable to attend a meeting, but wishes to raise an item, this may be done by contacting the classroom representative for their class (see flowchart on “How to raise a general school issue”)
