Frequently asked questions

  • What is the PTA all about?
  1. Fundraising for the school - this year we plan to purchase new Clever Touch Smart Boards for some classrooms.
  2. Supporting the staff and the school
  3. A bit of craic!
  • Who can join St Joseph’s PTA?

Any parent with a child or children currently at the school.

  • Where does the money raised by the PTA go?

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 buy iPads for each class.

  • Why should you join the PTA?

The PTA is here for you and your children and the best way you can make sure of that is to help us support the school.

We have an active and vibrant PTA and everyone of us is here because we care about the school and the pupils.

  • When do the PTA meet?

We meet about once every month, 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!

  • Is there an Executive Committee?

Yes and this is re-elected every year, although some people stay put by popular choice! There’s little glory and lots of work involved
