Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

I’m Kate McVeigh, Chair of Mallusk Integrated Primary School’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA).

We are a very friendly bunch here at Mallusk with one common goal ….. for our children to have the best and happiest learning experience throughout their primary years. By being involved in their school life and working closely with all staff we have the opportunity to get to know one another and to strengthen our school community.

All monies raised by fundraising events pays for extras and essentials to benefit the children and the school. PTA meetings are held monthly, we sit around a table and chat, usually with tea or coffee in our hand . It is always great to hear new ideas and ways to fund raise. Monies raised last school year totalled £3371.70! An amazing amount of money for such a small school. Fund raising events included…

  • Crazy Hair Day
  • Christmas Ballot Sales
  • Guess Who Party
  • Summer Fair
  • Business Poster Design

We were able to give a little back, £250 was raised for our chosen charity NSPCC by holding a bun sale and non-uniform day.

A fundraising idea is being carried on throughout this year, ‘Business Poster Design’. The idea is for the children to design a poster to advertise/promote a business who has agreed in return to donate a small amount of money to PTA funds. The poster will be displayed on the school Facebook page for all to like and share, therefore reaching out to a greater audience and promoting the business. If anyone knows of anyone who would like to avail of this advertising service, please speak to our Principal, Susanne Kinsella. This is a fun way for the children to express their artistic talents while raising money themselves for their school PTA.

We have already had a very successful fundraising term …. we have raised monies for McMillan Cancer by holding a bun sale, the fireside quiz and our Trick or Treat Party were great successes and well supported. Thanks to everyone.

Our first ‘big’ amount has just been spent in getting our new school website, hurray . Next on the agenda are ‘Tablets’. So let’s get fundraising ……….
