Chairperson stepping down
Lynne Bell is stepping down as Chairperson of the PTA after three years. Many thanks for her warmth, enthusiasm, and hard work.
The free monthly coffee mornings have been a great success in helping parents/guardians get to know each other and keep in touch. Thanks to those who dropped in home baking, and all the participants for mucking in and helping.
We need help
Administrators / co-ordinators are still needed for after-school Drama and Chess for the new school year. Most of their work is required at the start of term, i.e. sending out notices and compiling a rota. The co-ordinator doesn’t need to be present every week. If you’d like to volunteer, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We are planning to go to the Helix next year instead of the Gaiety, more details in September.
See how we work
Parents and guardians are welcome to drop into the first PTA meeting in September to see how it works without being drafted! Please contact email@example.com
