With your help last year, the PTA has helped the school buy band equipment, AV studio equipment, sports uniforms, new trestle tables and contributed towards the cost of the $90,000 sport surface outside the new classrooms.
With the construction programme well under way and the future shape of the school taking shape, there are plenty more projects that have been proposed but not able to be fully funded by the Ministry of Education. This is where we need your help to supply the extra cash to improve St Thomas's learning and recreational resourses. The main fundraising goal for 2015 is for more equipment for the school band and the purchase of a minivan.
Please get behind our efforts by helping out and supporting our activities.

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. We are also keen to hear from you if you have any ideas for events or have goods or services to donate for prizes.
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
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
