The provision of adequate funds to ensure consistent, high quality educational opportunities for our children is one of the more important functions of the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA). Part of the necessary funds are provided by grants from the Government, but there is a considerable level of spending required for equipment and resource materials, over these grants. The Board of Trustees and PTA are active in fundraising activities and seek the support of all parents.
