Class Contacts

Many thanks to those parents who have signed up to be class contact for their classes.Some parents are even taking responsibility for two classes. It is not a difficult task. All you need to do is maintain an email list and keep the parents of your class informed about PTA events throughout the year.

Parents from 2M, 3M, 4G,5L and 6S will have received an urgent request email to become a class contact this week, so if this is you and you can manage a little time for the role, contact the PTA. Your children’s classes are missing out until a parent steps forward.

PTA Shop

We stock stationery items for Years 4 – 6, recorders, lined white boards, hair ties, tennis balls, and book bags and nit combs. Our stationery is very reasonably priced (the same or cheaper than local shops) and we have the green and pink biros required in Years 5 & 6, which are hard to find elsewhere. We now also stock A5 recycled paper note books required in Year 4.

Please purchase from the PTA as all profits go back to the school. In the past, the PTA, with the help of parents, has raised money for books, playground and sports equipment, the climbing wall and garden.
