About the PTA and HOW IT WORKS
Who is a member of the PTA?
Every parent, guardian, teacher, member of staff or carer of a child at St William of Perth RC Primary School (SWOP) is automatically a member of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA).
How does it work?
The PTA is run by a core of volunteers (the PTA committee) who regularly attend meetings and help to organise events such as the School Discos, Frock SWOP and Summer Fun Day. However everyone is free to contribute as little or as much as they like as infrequently or as often as they are able. Each event is either fundraising so we can make purchases to enrich the learning environment of our children or to support making a special memory or experience for them.
Meetings are held at least each half term, usually in the church hall, usually on a Wednesday evening. Everyone is invited to come along to any of the meetings whether it's simply to listen to what's going on, express an opinion, make a suggestion to run an event, volunteer to help or become a member of the committee. We also have smaller working groups consisting of volunteers who co-ordinate the fundraising activities.
If you feel you would like to get involved either by helping at an event, giving us a great idea or you have a skill that you think we could use, making cakes, graphic design, web site design, marketing or PR experience to name but a few then please get in touch. We are always happy to welcome new volunteers and appreciate all the help that we get.
