Parent Teacher Association
Portstewart Primary School has a long history of well established close links with parents and a thriving Parent Teacher Association (PTA). The committee is a voluntary group of parents who are willing to work on behalf of all the parents, planning social activities and fundraising events throughout the school year.
The PTA Committee meet in the school from time to time, normally once or twice a term and thanks to the support of all parents and teachers, they make a lot of money for the school and all of the children benefit from their fundraising efforts.
In the past few years, the PTA has presented the school with :
* Interactive whiteboards and iPads
* Reading books
* Hockey kits
* Updating the ICT suite
* Outdoor play equipment for Nursery and Foundation Stage
Some of the events the PTA organise include; Discos, a Summer Fair, Quiz nights, a Treasure Hunt and Supper with Santa. In addition the PTA provide refreshments at Sports Day, Open Day and Primary 1 Induction nights and performances held in school.
We also have a number of parent volunteers and helpers who come in to school to support pupil learning, work with small groups and help organise whole school events.
If you would like to get involved in the PTA please contact Mrs Taylor.
