If your child has just joined the St Joseph's school community why not come along and join the PTA and give us some new and fresh ideas on fund raising while getting to know other parents. Please come and support our events to help us raise money for our wonderful school!
Frequently asked questions:
- What is the PTA all about?
1. Fundraising for the school we are aiming to equip all rooms with whiteboards and blinds
2. Supporting the staff and the school
3. A voice for all the parents
4. A forum for debate on issues affecting the pupils, teachers and parents
5. A bit of craic!
- Who can join St Joseph’s PTA?
Any parent with a child or children currently at the school.
The money raised by the PTA, with the untiring help of all the staff, has helped to subsidise the children’s annual trip to the Pantomime in the Opera House, First Communion Breakfast, Confirmation Party, Buses for Pantomime, the new Stage, Art equipment, Sports Equipment, whiteboards, blinds for the classrooms and much, much more. This year the focus of our fundraising is to continue to provide whiteboards for the classrooms .
The PTA is here for you and your children and the best way you can make sure of that is to add your voice to ours.
We have an active and vibrant PTA and everyone of us is here because we care about the school and the pupils.
We meet about once or twice per term, depending on how many events we’re organising that term so the commitment isn’t huge. Not everyone has time to join the PTA, we understand that, but you can give your support to the school in so many ways.
If you have any ideas for fundraising activities (the emphasis is always on fun), pass them on to any of the PTA and we’ll try to use as many as we can.
Fresh faces always bring fresh ideas and you don’t have to have any particular skill to be of value to your school, just bring yourself!
Yes and this is re-elected every 2 years, although some people stay put by popular choice and some can’t get out quickly enough ! There’s little glory and lots of work involved.
