Term 3 2014
The Athon was a great success. Thank you to our wonderful students, their supportive parents, school staff and helpers who got behind it and have raised a considerable amount. The weather was perfect for the cross country and the year zero to two confidence course. The exact amount raised is not known yet as money is still coming in but the school will be getting more than last year's event. If you haven't returned your form and money, please drop it at the school office ASAP.
The next lunchtime sausage sizzle will be on Friday the 12th of September.
Friday 17th of October. If you were't there last year, get in early and book your tickets to find out what you missed out on. Hilarity guarenteed. Watch the school newsletter for details and tickets.
Friday November 14th.

The funds raised by the PTA go towards providing facilities not provided by the Ministry of Education.

Money is also being allocated towards sports team uniforms, school band equipment and an AV studio.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.com
