About the PTA
The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is an integral part of the St Thomas's School community. The PTA is responsible for fundraising and social activities within the school community. We co-operate with and support the Board of Trustees and teachers to ensure the best possible outcomes.
We would love it if you could get involved with the PTA either on the committee or as a helper. It's a great opportunity to get to know some of the other parents, help your children and have some fun. If you want to find out more about what we do, feel free to contact us or come along to a meeting. We have regular meetings during term time, check back here for dates and times.
Friends of the PTA
If you don’t want to be involved in the details of organising events you can join the Friends of the PTA, our friendly team that lend us a hand when required. Our PTA men have started the League of Gentlemen to get fathers (and male caregivers) more involved in the School by organising events to appeal to men. If you'd like to find out more, contact Roger Lacey email@example.com.
We are also keen to hear from you if you have any ideas for events or have goods or services to donate for prizes.
New members are always welcome!
If you can't join the committee at the moment it would be a great help if you put your name on the Friends of the PTA. If you go on the Friends of the PTA list you will be contacted from time to time when we need help at events like the school picnic.
The PTA also operates a Class Co-ordinator System whereby one parent from each class co-ordinates class contact details for email and phone numbers. They then help to co-ordinate class social get-togethers, and information from the PTA. If you are interested in helping with your child's class, please contact Mel MaKay at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to be involved with the PTA as a class representative, PTA member or Friend of the PTA please contact Mel at email@example.com
