Our newly elected PTA Committee had our first meeting on Wednesday! It was a really positive meeting, whereby we decided roles within the PTA, organising WhatsApp Groups for new classes and as a means of communication and discussed possible targets for the year.
Roles in our PTA Committee;
Maribel Siewierska is our Chairperson.
Alexandra Cotorobaiis our Secreatry
Caroline Barden is our Treasurer
Timi Kacskovics is our Communication Co-ordinator
Juli Turek is our Fundraising Co-ordinator
We aim to share videos/pictures of PTA members next week to make us easily identifiable to the school community.
Last year’s PTA worked really hard on creating an infographic in relation to Communication, which was approved at our AGM on 30th September and as agreed we are adding a paragraph about WhatsApp groups to our PTA constitution.
PTA committee members are currently sorting out “admins” on Whatsapp Groups. PTA will ensure parents know who admin is for each class level, once we have it established. This will encourage communication channels between PTA committee and all our parents/guardians to be open and active. It will also assist PTA invite new school members to the groups.
PTA committee will continue to share information with parents/guardians of the school via WhatsApp groups!
Parents can also email suggestions/ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org
