In 2015 the PTA raised over $55,000 from various fundraising events. This will be going towards to the purchase of a school van and storage shed for use to transport children and teachers to various activities outside of school.
In 2016 our fundraising goal is for a Junior Interactive Playground.
St Thomas School Book Fair
The St Thomas School Book Fair is being held Sunday May 15th 9.00-1pm. You can drop off your books to the school office from 8.30am to 3.30pm during weekdays starting in Term 2.
The Lantern Walk will be held on Sunday May 22nd
Next PTA Meetings
Our next Meeting will be held on Wednesday 4th of May at 7.30pm in the school staffroom.
Prospective members are welcome to turn up and see what goes on. Please contact Helen Stansfield if you would like to come so you can be kept in touch with any possible venue changes. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
If paying on-line for PTA run fundraisers such as event tickets, athon and calandar art, please use the PTA bank account 12-3027-0333298-00 not the school account. It creates a big headache for the admin teams and while it is being sorted out, it may delay you getting what you ordered.
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
