St Mary's Catholic School are lucky to have a very proactive PTA. Renee Cleaver currently fills the role of chairperson. The Secretary is Juanita Conder, Treasurer Olivia Dunlop and Caring Committee Co-ordinator is Rachel Schuster. This group of willing helpers meet once a month.
The PTA's major fundraising ventures are:
An annual school gala in early March
Weekly sausage sizzles on a Friday
A number of evening discos during the year
In addition the PTA have in recent years also undertaken the following:
* Sale of gifts to children for Mother's Day and Father's Day
* Fundraising calendars, cards and diaries
* Hospitality for school events (eg morning tea for Grandparents Day) and meals for families who need extra assistance, due to situations such as ill health or bereavement.
New members are always welcome. Meeting times are advertised in the school newsletter.
If you are willing to be part of our Caring Committee helpers, or would like to find out more about what it is about, please see the following link.
The PTA has fundraised for the last few years for our Innovative Learning Environments: decks and canopies between Rooms 15 and 16 and behind Rooms 11 and 13, sound system, sandpit, cobbled area and fencing around Kakano classrooms. The fence is to be built in a couple of weeks. The last gala day’s fundraising was for a new surface under the senior playground and that is to be completed over the holidays. The cost of that project is approximately $30,000.
Thanks PTA and thank you parents for your support with the fundraising,
