St. Dominic’s PTA is a voluntary organisation that runs regular social and fundraising events for the whole school community, working with staff and governors to assist the school in the purchase of items required that fall outside the normal educational funding mechanisms. These efforts have enhanced the education and experience of all the children at the school and will continue to do so with your support. We are a registered charity no. 1106134 and members of the National Confederation of Parent Teacher Associations (NCPTA).
All families of children at our school are automatically members of the PTA. We have a small number of formal committee members. Our AGM is held in January and, like all of our meetings, is open to everyone and we would love to see you there!
Our main focus is to raise funds to enable St. Dominic’s to purchase equipment or facilities that the school would otherwise be unable to provide. Also, the more we raise, the more you save on paying for activities/trips/travel costs. Recently, we have funded the Nativity Players visit, book stock, compost toilet, kindles, iPods and subsidised coach costs to many external trips enjoyed by the children including pantomimes, swimming and Cluster Sports.
Our major annual events are the Christmas Bazaar, Duck Race and Summer Fete. We continually provide refreshments at school events.
We are always looking for new committee members and you are welcome to join us at any point during the academic year. This involves attending a minimum of 3 meetings a year and supporting our major fundraising and social events. Alternatively, if you wish to support us in a less formal role, we would still very much appreciate your help. So if you have a particular skill that could help that is great but equally if you can serve refreshments, count money or move furniture we would be happy to add your name to our volunteers list.
The PTA recognises how much the families of our pupils give to the school, from helping in the class room, baking cakes or donating something for the tombola to name just a few. Without this help our school would not be able to offer so much to meet the different needs of children in our school and for this support thank you all very much.
Please contact the PTA for any further information via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the school office.
