Our PTA

Who are we?

We are a friendly group of mums, dads and caregivers who volunteer our time to run and help out with events and fundraising for the school and other community services. The PTA hold fundraising events each year to raise money to put towards the needs of the school, as identified by and agreed with the school.

Some of the PTA Fundraising Purchases and Donations:

  • Mondo grass and cherry tress for the new Oriental Garden

  • Exhibition display screens

  • Bike track

  • Upgrade of the school pool

  • Dryer for the school

  • Watering cans for Enviro

  • Senior courtyard upgrade

  • School House flags

Your Officers

  • EJ Westerin (Chairperson)

  • Kat Felton (Deputy Chairperson)

  • Annie Toohey (Treasurer)

What is the PTA currently working on?

Our target has been re-considered for this Covid-19 year; however, we have assisted the school in the purchase of free-standing panel display screens, recently used at the Art Exhibition to display the amazing work our children have been doing. Our two largest face to face events will be postponed to 2021. The Parents Evening will now be in March and the Food Festival will now be held in November. We are continuing with our second hand uniform sales and have introduced an optional swim/PE bag for purchase.
