Fir Tree Primary School PTA

Welcome to Fir Tree Primary School Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

 

Fir Tree’s PTA was reinstated in November 2018. The PTA is there to encourage closer links between home and school by organising fundraising and social events for parents and children.

 

Fir Tree’s PTA are not currently a registered charity, but this is an aim in the coming years.

 

The PTA meets on a regular basis (usually once a month – dates are confirmed in the school newsletter) to discuss ideas for upcoming events and how money is to be spent.

If you are interested in getting involved in any way, please contact us on ptafirtreeschool@gmail.com or you can find us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/FirTreePrimaryPTA/
