We are fortunate at our school to have a St. Mary's PTA Committee and parent volunteers that is and has been an integral part of the school community for a number of years. In its time St. Mary's PTA has raised thousands of pounds, which has been spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children's education experience and the school's facilities.
St. Mary's PTA is about much more than simply fundraising. St. Mary's PTA exists to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. It is fun too - just ask any of the Committee members or helpers. St Mary’s PTA work across both schools to create fun and memorable events.
All parents and members of the school community are encouraged to get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time available. All families are AUTOMATICALLY members of St. Mary's PTA when their child joins our school.
St. Mary's PTA is extremely conscious of the Catholic ethos and diversity of our school, and we try very hard when organising and planning events to respect this. Not all of our events are run as fundraisers.
St. Mary's PTA relies on a continual cycle of parent involvement. As children reach their final year and leave, so do their parents. The teachers and Head support the PTA when possible, but without all your support, we have no St. Mary's PTA - WE REALLY DO NEED YOU.
St. Mary's PTA Committee is a mixture of parents that work together for the benefit of St Mary's. Some are full-time parents, some work part-time or full-time. NONE of us are specialists in fundraising.
Please let your Class Rep know if you would like to get involved or join us at our next meeting.
