Welcome to your PTA
St Mary’s PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is a formal organisation of parents, teachers and staff who meet regularly. Whilst the organisation is formal, meetings are not so please do not be put off. We welcome new members and are grateful for new ideas.
The PTA exists to fulfil two roles,
- To raise much needed funds for the school, through a range of events, such as Christmas Fairs, Discos, Summer Fairs the Welcome BBQ and our longstanding 200 club.
- To provide the social link between school staff, parents and children, providing people with the opportunity to meet and make new friends, socialise and have FUN! This July we are very much looking forward to holding our very first ‘family camp’.
The children benefit socially, financially and emotionally from the work of the PTA and the work we do helps to enrich the caring atmosphere which is vital to the happiness of our school family. PTA purchases since September 2014 include cameras for every class, an outdoor PA/sound system, science and geography resources and a fabulous Willow Dome (outdoor classroom) and gardening resources.
All parents and staff are automatically members of the PTA and we depend on the support of all adults involved with the school. The PTA committee is elected annually to organise and co-ordinate the various events. The committee meet on a monthly basis, you may not be able to make these meetings but may be able to help out in other ways, sharing a talent, setting out or clearing up after an event, securing raffle prizes or helping with craft events in school. We are grateful for whatever you are able to offer.
If you have any queries about the PTA please do not hesitate to contact them by email firstname.lastname@example.org or join our facebook page St Marys RC Primary Marple Bridge.
