Nurturing Inquiring Minds

Parent Teachers Association

What We Do

The PTA raise vital funds for the school. Recently we have supported the school with the installation the Friendship Shelter in the playground, the ramp at the front of the school and the wellbeing Garden Project, which included new sandpits. We have also purchased 30 new iPads and a new, portable PA system as well as funding the annual school trips. All the children at Riverhead have benefitted from these donations. We are currently raising to complete the funding for the new outdoor library.

How You Are Involved, and How We Raise Funds

All parents and staff are members of the PTA. You are invited to attend our termly PTA meetings and our AGM. And throughout the year we organise a broad range of activities and events for the children, as well as the adults;

 

  • Events for the children: Magician, Disco, Movie Nights, Bangers & Bingo
  • Events for families: Summer Fair, Christmas Carols
  • Events for parents and carers: Coffee mornings, Quiz Nights, Wine Tasting, Raffles & Coronation Ball (recent joint event with Amherst)

 

These are a few of our past events. We are always open to new suggestions!
