PTA – St Joseph’s Parents and Teachers Association

The PTA plays a key role in the life of the school. All parents automatically become member of the PTA when their child enters school. The PTA meets regularly and organises social and fund raising events.

What do we do?

The PTA aims to bring the school community together through social activities, with the emphasis on having fun, and at the same time raising funds so the school can provide items that it could not otherwise afford.

How do we raise money?

The majority of the PTA funds are raised through the Christmas and Summer Fayres.

The PTA recognises that a variety of events is key to building a strong PTA and that different events and activities will appeal to different people. The Committee would therefore like to hear your views on the kinds of events that you would be interested in attending or events which you would be willing to help organise.

How is the money raised spent?

Spending priorities are identified by the Headteacher and school staff, in consultation with the PTA Committee.

Recent items purchased from PTA funds include:

  • ICT Suite donation of £10000 to help set up
  • A Lighting and Sound System for the school hall
  • The Adventure Playground
  • Gazebo
  • 35 Samsung Tablets

In addition, the PTA supports school trips and other special events.

How Can You Help?

There are lots of ways you can help the PTA and support your child’s time at St Joseph’s. New members on the PTA Committee are of course always very welcome. However, any offers of help and support are gratefully received, the PTA Committee is always glad of a few extra helping hands, and any offers of assistance are much appreciated.
