What is the PTA currently working on?

We can't believe it is June already and we are half way through delivering our events for the year. With overwhelming support at the TRYathlon, a fantastic Mother's Day treat and an overdue treat of Bingo for the Parents Evening we can see our contributions being implemented around the school property already. We've re stocked our beanies and scarves for the cooler months and look forward to bringing the International Food Festival to you all later in the year.
