The Parent Teacher Association is a fund raising committee run by parents of children in the school. It organises both fund raising and social events for the school community.
Helping to enhance the lives of our children at Killigrew
The PTA actively supports the school through its fund raising efforts raising money for all those extras that enhance the children’s lives in school.
The success of the PTA depends entirely on the support of all parents and staff. We greatly appreciate any assistance. This can be anything from a little time helping out, to coming along to support the functions with family and friends.
The PTA activities are enjoyable and we hope that they are a good way for people to meet each other. Through events such as Fayres, Easter Bakes, Quiz Night, Family Discos and even a school ball we have raised tens of thousands of pounds in the last few years. These funds have enabled the schools to provide extra, valuable resources for the children to use. We have also provided funds for the early years play area, computers and many other items.
How can you help?
Most parents have many demands on their time. The majority of parents work in some capacity and it is appreciated that no one has unlimited time to devote to projects outside of work and home. However if every parent gave just a few hours of their time each year the PTA would be literally overwhelmed by such support. We don’t expect parents to contribute to or help at every event but you can take great satisfaction from knowing that any help you do give will benefit the schools, our children and ultimately the whole community.
