Parent TeAcher association
Friends of Notre Dame
Aims and Objectives
The PTA serves three main functions working towards furthering the educational, social and general opportunities of our children at Notre Dame School.
Communication: to adopt good communication between parents, carers and staff within the school community.
Parental Involvement: to support the involvement of parents and carers.
Fundraising: the PTA organises several events throughout the year to provide additional funds for the school.
Notre Dame PTA membership is free and open to all parents and carers with children attending the school. A large part of our activities involve fundraising subsidising activities and school resources.
Why be Involved?
"The aim of Parent teacher associations is to foster better relationships between parents, carers and their children's schools. PTAs create a partnership which helps the school listen to and deal with parents' concerns; and for parents to learn more about the school and how to improve their children's education. PTAs do not necessarily represent the views of all parents and carers but they can be an excellent forum for communication and a basis for partnership between parents, carers and schools."
