LETTER FROM THE CHAIR OF PTA
Hi everyone and welcome to all our new parents, I’m Kate, Chair of the PTA. I have twin girls in P7, I can’t believe this is their last year here at Mallusk. It is going to be a very sad day for quite a few parents, staff and kids come the end of June. The school will be losing 9 amazing pupils! My girls have had an amazing journey here at MIPS. It has been a privilege being a part of the transformation process and watching the school grow from strength to strength.
I’ve been Chair now for the past 4 years, I was appointed under duress lol – no one else volunteered for the role. I pretend to know what I’m doing but truth be told I have quite a few fantastic supporters behind me, we work brilliantly as a team. Myself and Sharon, our Treasurer, will be stepping down from the PTA committee at our AGM in November. This will open up new opportunities for other parents to get more involved in the running of the PTA. Remember, we are all a part of the PTA when our children attend the school.
The role of the PTA is to support the school and our children throughout their primary school experience. As I’m sure you are all aware the school budget does not cover essentials let alone extend to luxuries. We as a PTA provide the support needed by holding fundraising events throughout the year.
Meetings are very informal, it is a great way to get involved in our school community and to meet other parents. We have some exciting fundraising activities coming up soon, come along to find out more, we are always needing help!
We are planning a Christmas Fayre, this is a first for me, so anyone with experience please feel free to come along and lend a hand.
PJ Day was a huge success, thank you all for your generous support.
