Our group is called The Meads PTA and has been running for several years. We're a lively group of volunteers.
The main function of our PTA is to support the school by raising as much money as we can to enhance, enrich and improve learning experiences for the children. We also provide those 'little extras' that make school memorable, such as Breakfast with Santa.
We also exist to bring the communities of school and home closer together because it makes sense for parents to be involved in the life of their chosen school.
Lastly, we’re here for the simple reason that we want to get together socially, meet new people, have fun and raise money!
The PTA is run by a committee who are all volunteers, chaired by Janine O'Leary. We are also joined by members of school staff who volunteer their time.
We might sound like an abstract group of people, but we're parents, carers, friends and allies – just like you.
 
All parents are automatically members of the PTA when their child starts at the school. The more people become involved, the more we can achieve and the easier it will be.
 
We look forward to seeing you!

Online Safety – Distorted Selfies
