What your organisation does

The main objective of the PTA is to raise funds that can be used to support and enhance the education, school experience and social development of children attending St Joseph’s Primary School. In addition the PTA aim to be a forum to enable the sharing of views on extra-curricular matters between parents and teaching staff. The PTA organises a

programme of annual events that provide social activities for children and parents. These events are well attended and include school discos, quizzes, raffles, communion and confirmation teas, marathon relays, outdoor activities and an annual community fun day event held each June. These events have built community spirit both within and outside the school, enhanced relationships between teachers, parents and pupils and fostered a strong, positive sense of identity for everyone engaged with the school.
