Friends of the school
Welcome to Friends of Parker’s Primary School, also known as the PTA (Parent-Teacher Association).
Our PTA is much more than simply fundraising. The Association exists to provide closer links between home and school and is an excellent way to bring parents, staff and other supporters together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal.
We aim to help in:
- Developing effective relationships between the staff, parents and others associated with the school.
- Engaging in activities or providing facilities or equipment which support the school and advance the education of the pupils.
We produce regular newsletters which inform on the amount of funds raised, forthcoming events, requests for help/donations and detailing how the funds are being used within the school.
Our Association is vested in a Committee consisting of the following:
- Chair: Julia Best
- Vice Chair: Jayne Robertson
- Treasurer: Jo Poulastides
- Secretary: Kelly Scott
- Committee Members
- Members of the School staff
Our Association meet on a regular basis, usually once per term, when all members and parents are welcome to join us.
If you are interested in joining the committee or volunteering at an event, please do not hesitate to talk to a member of the Committee.
Donations from parents are extremely important. You can donate time, money, items for sale, raffle prizes or offers of services and skills.
Please contact us through the school office; your feedback and ideas are always welcome!
Shopping and raising funds
Raise money for our school by using easyfundraising.
This is a great way of earning funds for the school with minimal effort when doing on-line shopping. When you shop the easyfundraising way with one of their 3,135 shops and sites, they are given a commission for your purchase, they then turn that into a donation for our School.
